A fabulous appetizer or snack, these Pulled Pork Nachos are super easy to make and a total crowd-pleaser.
Make them for a party, make them for game day, make them for dinner. Just make them!
Step by step photos and instructions below!
You will LOVE this easy recipe that can be an appetizer, snack, lunch, or dinner! It uses Pulled Pork (hey, if you have leftovers – use them!) You could swing by your local BBQ restaurant and pick up some pulled pork, or make your own. This can be also be adapted to use leftover rotisserie chicken if that is what you have.
This is one of my favorite things to make on a weekend, especially when we are busy because everyone loves it and it doesn’t take long to make. We just keep the ingredients on hand and prepped (they are pretty common items, you probably already have them!)
We don’t have people over very often, but you can imagine how quickly these go – and how crowded it gets around the platter when I pull these nachos out of the oven! Thankfully it is easy to double, triple or quadruple, right?

Kylee’s Notes & FAQs
If you want to get super fancy, squeeze a little lime juice into your sour cream, and add it to a squeeze bottle. It not only adds flavor, but makes it easy to distribute!
If you’d like some extra flavor, add a little chili powder to your BBQ sauce.
- Add some black beans or some jalapenos to the top.
- Add some chopped fresh tomato.
- Grill up some corn and add to the top, too!
- While I like to use Monterey jack cheese, cheddar cheese or pepper jack are also good!

Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Cut up the cilantro, red onions and shred your cheese (if using a block).
Add a layer of chips to the prepared baking sheet, spreading to make sure the entire surface is covered. You could try placing them more prettily than I do if looks matter to you!
Add the pulled pork, then the red onion. Drizzle BBQ sauce over the top, then add the shredded cheese (you may like to use up to 1 cup shredded cheese more than the 8oz I suggest).
Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted.
Remove the nachos from the oven and squirt sour cream over the top, then chopped cilantro. Add some lime wedges and/or sliced avocado. Season with salt and pepper if you’d like to, and serve.
