Freezer Challenge: Pulled Pork Nachos

My freezer challenge lives on.  The last thing I pulled from the freezer was pulled pork.  We served pulled pork for Kramer’s celebration of life.  We ended up freezing the leftovers.  I’m not a huge pulled pork fan.  I like it and will happily eat a sandwich…and one the next day and then after that, I’m tired of it.  I had a gallon bag of it to use so I knew I needed to get creative.

I came up with these….
Pulled Pork Nachos….Oh my word.  These gave a whole new life and flavor to regular nachos…and was much better than a regular pulled pork sandwich.

Here’s what I did…
First off I used these chips…Donkey Chips.

Donkey Salted Tortilla Chips, 14 Ounce (Pack of 12)
Seriously, these are the best chips.  I don’t know when or where I picked these up at.  I know it wasn’t my regular grocery store.  Who knows where I was.  But seriously these are the best tortilla chips I’ve had EVER.  So good that I went and found them online at Amazon and bought a case of them.  You can too.  HERE is a link.  They are that good.

I put the chips out on a plate.  Then I put warmed pulled pork over the top of them.  I was pretty generous as this was my meal and not an appetizer.  From there I sprinkled a generous amount of Tajin on.

Tajín Clásico Seasoning 14 oz
Some of you might not heard of Tajin.  It’s a Mexican spice.  Our grocery store does not handle it.  I can find it at my WalMart now.  If you can’t, you can find it HERE on Amazon.

Then I cut up a generous amount of fresh cilantro and put that over the top…then shredded cheese.  I happened to have a “taco” blend cheese and used that.  Pretty much any shredded cheese you have on hand will do.

Then into the microwave for 45 seconds or so…long enough to just melt the cheese.

I’ll made a confession here.  I loved this so much I ate it for three meals in a row.  I’d likely have ate it for a fourth but I was out of pulled pork.

Once my freezer is cleaned out, I’m going to hit up the caterer who did Kramer’s celebration of life and get more pulled pork from him.  I want to have pulled pork in the freezer so I can make this MUCH more often.

As mom of a bunch of adult kids that crash my house at supper time, this would be a great quick something I can pull out, unthaw and fix fast!  I’m giving this one a HUGE two thumbs up!!

    I get pulled pork nachos at a local restaurant here. I love them. They serve them on small sheet pans.
    Yours look good. I am going to check out the nachos. Oh when I make these at home I put on a sheet pan and bake in the oven. the nachos get crunchier.

    When our local brewery first opened they hadn’t built up a kitchen so they had a food truck every weekend. They had the best pork nachos! The brewery has great food now, but sometimes I really crave those nachos. You can also make a nice pulled pork pizza with BBQ sauce.

    If your daughter wants a white chenille bedspread in perfect condition I would be happy to send it to you or her. I was going to go donate it as I have no use for it. It is too heavy to use now that we have moved south.

    Try this crockpot 3 ingredient pulled pork

    Pork shoulder (3# or so, sometimes $.99/lb.)
    Can of soda (not diet. Ginger ale, 7 up, cola, root beer)
    Bottle of favorite BBQ sauce (we like Sweet Baby Rays).

    Put pork in crockpot. Pour soda on top. Cook until tender.
    Drain fat. Pull pork and serve with BBQ sauce. .

    I keep the pulled pork from Costco on hand for nachos, sandwiches, street tacos. It’s really convenient and delicious.
