Easy BBQ Nachos

When you make pulled pork BBQ, you usually make a lot.    A whole crock pot full, for instance.    It's a great meal for a party or a group.    

If you're looking for a way to get that BBQ in your mouth without using a bun, try making nachos.    It couldn't be any easier and when you make nachos at home you get only the toppings you want, the way you want them.   

Nachos are personal.   Getting everyone to agree on the same toppings is a challenge.    Olives (eww!). Sour Cream (yay!).   Guac (whatev).    When you make them at home, everyone (or just you) can pick what they want.

For these nachos, I used both plain tortilla chips and the Doritos Jacked - Chipotle BBQ flavored.    My pulled pork had Sweet Baby Ray's Raspberry Chipotle sauce.     I topped them with some of the shredded Mexican/Taco blend cheese from the store and drizzled a little more sauce on top.   Good to go!

What You Need

Your favorite chips
Your favorite bbq meat
Your favorite toppings (cheese, sour cream, sauce, onions, etc - you are only limited by your creativity)

What You Do

If your bbq meat is still hot, great.   If not, you'll want to warm it up in the microwave.

Preheat oven to 350.

Line a cookie sheet with either foil or a silicone baking mat.      Make a single layer of chips on the cookie sheet.   Top your chips with bbq meat and cheese (and any other toppings that you want to heat up).

Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese melts.     Pull out of the oven, put on plates and add any additional toppings.


And now for a little love from Maui.     Saturday February 15 was World Whale Day.   I went to Kihei to see the parade and go to the festival.    There is a sculpture of a whale at Kalama Park....to celebrate the occasion, it had a big whale sized lei on.
