Pulled Pork Nachos
OMG! TGIF! I am so happy Friday is here. The days this week have been short and long all at the same time. Lots to catch up from after being gone for vacation. It was only four days but man did things seem to pile up.
When we were gone I REALLY wanted nachos. Mr. J was extremely happy about this because he REALLY wanted to go to the ESPN Club on the Boardwalk at Disney. Not my favorite place with so many other fun options at Epcot next door but the hinting of nachos had me caving to his request.
But when we got there the menu had changed from our last visit. Their appetizer nachos were now topped with pulled pork. I wasn't opposed to the idea but the nachos I had in mine were plain old beef topped cheesy goodness. No BBQ sauce in mind.
I ended up with a sandwich (I should have gone for the nachos.) but the idea of pulled pork nachos stayed with me. It didn't take long to decided that we had to try them out.
I made pulled pork from the Slow Cooker overnight with a super easy recipe. Dinner was easy to whip up come 5pm. Yes, we really eat at five.
We lightly piled tortilla chips with black beans, red onion, spinach, tomatoes and cheese. Then we baked them on the lowest rack of the oven at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. When the cheese is all melty remove from the oven and top with pulled pork. Not the typical nachos but oh so good.
