BBQ Nachos

January 20, 2012

It’s Friday!

Thank goodness!

I can’t tell you how ready for the weekend I am. I need sleep! Although I’m not one of those lateweekendsleepers. Totally wish I was. But, sleeping in for me is 7 AM. Yes you read right. And yes, I’m crazy.

But hey, sleeping “in” til 7 is way better than waking up at 4:50 every morning like I do on weekdays.

…I’ll take what I can get!

I’ll also take a HUGE plate of the nachos…n e day!

Remember the other day when I made pork in the crockpot? Well naturally since I live in a two person household, we had t-o-n-s of leftovers, and I needed a way to use up all that intense pork.

Nachos were the first thing that came to mind. BBQ nachos. Kind of like the ones they serve at the baseball games. Have you had them? It’s my favorite baseball food. Actually, that’s the only reason I go to baseball games. And for funnel cake…with ice cream. Take me out to the ball game!

The fun thing about nachos is you can add whatever you want to them. It’s like a piece of art and you are the arteest!

My toppings are all very traditional except that I added BBQ sauce and pulled pork. And of course I think this is the best plate of nachos. Forget ground beef.

Here’s to the weekend!

BBQ Nachos
makes a huge plate of nachos

3 cups tortilla chips

1 can refried beans

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

2 cups shredded pork

1 cup shredded cheese

Sour cream, avocado, green onions for topping

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

On a baking sheet spread out half the the tortilla chips then spread half the refried beans over the chips. Drizzle 1/4 of BBQ sauce over the beans, then 1 cup of shredded pork, and 1/2 cup of cheese. Repeat this process to create a second layer of nachos.

Bake for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top with sour cream, avocado, and green onions. And feast!

You wake up at 4:50?!?! Oh my god, I would seriously be a walking zombie, it might kill me. I don’t know how you do that. These nachos sound amazing! I love refried beans, could seriously eat them with a spoon as gross as that might sound haha. And I bet the BBQ pulled pork is amazing with it! YUM!

Mmm nachos! I may not be able to eat this, but I’m certainly going to pass it along to my parents for some super bowl munchies. I agree about how versatile nachos are. Even being vegetarian, there are tons of ways for me to load up some nachos.

i love barbeque nachos–one of my favorite things to make in the kitchen. so easy but so delicious!

i cannot believe you wake up at 450 every morning. i thought 605 was painful.

Oh Steph, you really know how to treat corn chips! Nice that you introduced them to BBQ, because now that they are all friends I am ready to eat them-yum! Have a great weekend!

Nachos are my favorite. I have been craving them lately for the last month. I am trying to stick to only once a week. Trying. Always with avocados.
