There are regular run-of-the-mill nachos. Chips 'n cheese 'n blah 'n blah. And then there are PULLED PORK nachos.
Heyyyyyy party animals! Pull out the team jerseys, paint your cheeks and fire up your slow cookers. It’s time for last-minute easy-peasy game day snackin', and we’ve got a dish so quick (and so wildly delicious!) you’ll feel like you’ve been recruited as MVP of Team Party Eats.
These Pulled Pork Nachos are the ultimate snack to serve to a crowd. They’re familiar classics, but with a big ‘ol tasty twist.
The best part? A couple of slow cookers, a few minutes of prep, and you’ll be feeding a big ol' cheering crowd in no time at all.
Get a head start by grabbing a bag or two of Food Should Taste Good chips the next time you go to the grocery store. I love the olive or multigrain flavors, but you could also make the jalapeno or sweet potato varieties into the most delicious flavor combinations ever.
Now, you’ll need two slow cookers. 3-4 quart (the small to medium-sized ones) make the ideal bake-n-serve size. Just pop barbecue sauce on top of pork in the first slow cooker. It’s that easy.
Let the pork cook for about 4-5 hours before shredding. An hour before you’re ready to serve, use two forks to shred your pork into tender bits.
An hour before you’re ready to serve, prep the cheese in the second slow cooker. Milk, cornstarch, American cheese. It’s that easy.
Cover and set this mixture to high for about an hour. Use a whisk to stir it all together until smooth.
When it’s time to party, place your slow cookers on a buffet table with bowls of green onions, cilantro, jalapenos, red peppers, and Food Should Taste Good chips.
Invite party guests to pile everything high on a plate and customize their own portions.
Serve with napkins and beer. This recipe it something worth cheering about!
