    This was a nice change of pace to traditional nachos. I usually make a recipe as stated but I used this one more for inspiration. I had quite a bit of tender pork leftover so I shredded it instead of cooking in the slow cooker. I sauteed the peppers and onion, then added the leftover pork, BBQ sauce, and beans. Instead of adding the cheese to the mix, I topped the nachos and pork mixture with the cheese and baked for a few minutes to melt.

    Made this pulled pork nachos for dinner tonight. Pork had a very good flavor and was very tender.If you are not a nacho fan it would also be very good served on a bun.

    The pulled pork is very tender and tasty, though the barbeque flavor on nachos takes a bit of getting used to. Overall, it's a good recipe, though I may stick to sandwiches!
