These pork nachos will knock your boots off. In fact, they will probably knock you naked. And it will be worth it. They are the best dang nachos I’ve ever had. EVER. And that’s saying a lot because I really thought we loved our Tropical Nachos with mangoes, wontons, that yummy sweet chili sauce…mmmmmm. Seriously though, these rocked our world.

I was making nachos for a football game and told Mr Handsome to come try a bite. I ran over to take my little C. to the restroom and when I returned he was devouring the pork nachos.

These nachos, are super easy to make, and I love that you can make a fresh roast or just use leftovers from dinner the night before. BOO-YAH.  So, all you need is a yummy pork roast, we chose to use Harmon’s Spoon Roast (if you live in Utah and you have not purchased a spoon roast get on that. Seriously, you are missing out on the best roast ever and the best part it, it’s even seasoned for you. Just keep it in the paper it’s wrapped in and throw it in a low crockpot or 250 degree oven and then enjoy the juiciest pork EVER), Pinto beans, sauteed peppers, Pina Colada sauce *recipe follows, and loads of Colby Jack Cheese. Oh, and the Tostitos Scoops Chips. They are the best for nachos since they keep everything in a perfect bite.

I’m actually a bit of a weirdo with nachos. I don’t like mine piled high like they are in the other pictures. I eat mine like above. You see, I want every single chip to be the perfect bite. Many nachos (ballpark, you know I love you, but you are totally guilty of this) are fantastic for the first few bites, but as you make your way into them the second and bottom layer are always totally dry! SO LAME. So, I lay all of my scoops out and fill each one with the perfect bite. Gosh, those are seriously so yummy. MMMMMM.

What Cut Of Pork Is Best For Shredded Pork?

Most barbecue restaurants use whole pork shoulders, but they are hard to find in a grocery store.

If you can’t find a whole pork shoulder, Boston butt is the best choice.

But, pulled pork can be made from any fatty pork roast.


What Is A Good Substitute For Pinto Beans?

Great northern beans can be used in any recipe that calls for pinto beans.


Can Nachos Be Reheated?

Do not reheat in the microwave as the chips will become soft and soggy.

You can put the Nachos in an oven-safe pan and broil for about 1-3 minutes.

  1. Greetings form Denmark

    Your recipe sounds good and nice, but can only get died Pinto Beans så how big are these cans you are using??

  2. Can the Pina Colada sauce be made the day before?

  3. It looks like your squirting the pina colada sauce from a bottle. But crushed pinapple won’t get through that spout. Did you process it in a blender? Or is the white stuff in the bottle something else?

  4. Seeing as I live in Sydney, I obvs. can’t get a Spoon’s roast. So s&p – and I have a bunch of those herb paste tubes to use up. Do you think thyme, parsley, and garlic would be good? I’d probably throw some oregano and cumin in there to get more of a Mexican-ish flavor.

    And I’m 10,000% with you on nachos stacked too high. I have to toss it like pasta to distribute the toppings.
