Pulled Pork Nachos

When it comes to nachos in my house, Texas-style is the type that flies. My Texan-bred wife brought the superiority of these nachos to my attention years ago. Each chip is individually topped then baked, ensuring you get full crisp and flavor in every bite. The norm for our nachos is a lone slice of pickled jalapeƱo and some longhorn cheddar, but I let my love of barbecue take over.

For these pulled pork nachos, I gave each chip a spoonful of pulled pork from my leftover summer stash, a squirt of barbecue sauce, and a sprinkling of cheddar. It's a whole new way to enjoy barbecue.

The corn chips bring a pleasing new flavor and texture into the smokey-saucy equation—it felt like a perfect pairing. I can't wait to share this excellent creation, and luckily the perfect platform for them is only a week away.
