I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend (for those in the United States). I know I did–I unplugged for 3 nights and 4 days. Let me just tell you–it does a body good to unplug every now and then. My husband and I went up to Northwest Florida to go scalloping. Although, the scallops forgot to show up to our party. Yep, not one scallop to be found. It is late in the season and with an abundance of rain–they have been washed out to sea. So instead we had a relaxing and lounging weekend on the boat hanging out at the sand bar with our friends! We also ate lots of food. What do you do when you have tons of leftovers? Make pulled pork nachos! Duh!
These nachos are the ultimate way to use up all your leftovers in the refrigerator. Plus you’ll have a super simple meal in no time and everyone will not even recognize that this was dinner just the other day! At least that is what happened in my home. This happened to be a tasty lunch for us earlier this summer after I had made my slow cooker pulled pork recipe. I just started grabbing all sorts of leftover and concocted the most delicious tasting nachos ever. Whether you eat these for dinner, an afternoon snack or maybe even lunch–whatever the meal it be your going to love using up your leftovers to make the most delicious tasting pulled pork nachos, ever. I can guarantee that!
Katie Original Recipe
Pulled Pork Nachos
- 1 Oven
- 1 Microwave
- 1 Baking Sheet
- ½ cup baked beans leftover
- 1 cup pulled pork leftover
- ½ Tortilla chips
- 1 cup shredded cheddar
- ¼ cup bleu cheese
- 1 tablespoon red onion thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoon barbecue sauce
- 1 teaspoon Fresh Parsley for garnish
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Reheat the pulled pork and baked beans together for about 1 minute in the microwave.
- While oven preheats, lay chips out on a large baking pan. Then generously sprinkle the chips with the leftover pulled pork/baked beans mixture.
- Sprinkle on the shredded cheddar cheese and bleu cheese. Top with thinly sliced red onions.
- Bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees, followed by a high broil for 1 minute until cheese is golden brown and bubbly. Remove from the oven, drizzle barbecue sauce on top and garnish with minced fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
- Leftovers - This is the easiest way to use up leftover baked beans and pulled pork.
- Cheese - If you don't like bleu cheese you can use shredded cheddar instead.
Must add this to our late night nacho repertoire!
I have a weak spot for pulled pork 🙂 this is amazing!!!
Ha ha thanks Brandy! Most people do and these nachos take it to the next level!
Now THAT is a the way to do leftovers. What a great-looking plate of nachos!
Oh, how I love scallops…it’s too bad they didn’t show up for your day of scalloping.
Thanks Dara! I’m always trying to figure out ways to use up leftovers. Hopefully we can go scalloping earlier in the season next year!

It looks delicious Katie! Everything with pulled pork is a winner in my book 🙂 I love the addition of blue cheese too, such a good idea!

Oh man…what a delicious way to use pulled pork! I’ve been making pulled pork on the smoker all summer…but I haven’t tried nachos yet!
Use up those leftovers, David! Make some nachos!
I love this idea – we do the same thing with our leftovers.

That is such a fun way to use up the pulled pork leftovers! I love it!!!
Katie, this recipe is totally brilliant! What a fun way to use up leftovers! And, seriously, I might just make all this food just for the nachos.
Ha ha thanks Karly! I had just a little bit of baked beans leftover and thought… I could add that in the pork! I see some pulled pork in your future (for next day nachos)!

I have been craving nachos for DAYS… like since last week sometime. Ahh! I need these asap!
Haha… I love nachos and probably make them once a week–all sorts of variations. Nothing like a good loaded nacho!
