Barbecue Pulled Pork Potato Chips Nachos

A yummy twist on your usual nachos – use potato chips instead of tortilla chips then load it with pulled pork, barbecue sauce, cheese, pickles, and green onions! Such a delicious party appetizer or snack for Game Day or any gathering!

One of our dear friends from church, Eve, shared this delicious recipe with us last summer when we gathered for our monthly YAMS (Young and Married) meeting. She said this is how they make their nachos in Missouri using pulled pork on top of potato chips and not fried tortillas!

We were all intrigued for sure! After a couple of bites – I was so hooked and loved it! I said to myself, from now on this is how I will make my nachos.

After all, I already have a delicious recipe for pulled pork and really, the rest of the ingredients are just store-bought add-ons. If you want to use our barbecue pulled pork recipe for this, please find the full recipe and instructions here.

What I love are the many yummy combinations of flavors in one plate that this barbecue pulled pork potato chips nachos has to offer!

Take this – sweet-tangy barbecue flavors from the pulled pork, salty savoriness from the potato chips,  sweet, briny, and crunchy deliciousness from the bread and butter pickles, cheesy goodness from either cheddar or queso dip, fresh onion flavors from green onions sprinkled on top and for good measure – an extra dollop or two of barbecue sauce!

There are a couple of options with regard to the cheese. You can use shredded cheese like cheddar, Mexican blend, or pepper jack, or for convenience (no more extra melting) a queso dip! For the former, we need to melt the cheese briefly in the oven just before serving.

If using a queso dip, you can simply pour it over the nachos and serve right away. Feel free to choose whichever you like. They are equally delicious!

I’m getting so hungry looking at these photos and craving a plateful of these pulled pork potato chips nachos as I write! This is such a perfect addition to any party, or gathering and certainly for Game Day!

So let’s go over how to make this yummy barbecue pulled pork potato chips nachos!

    These were so good! I was concerned that the chips would get soggy, but they didn’t at all. Absolutely delicious and I’ll be making them again.
