Every bite of these Hawaiian Pulled Pork Nachos is layered with spicy, sweet, and gooey goodness! These meaty nachos are the ultimate game day food, or make a quick weeknight meal. Make a mile high stack because they will be gone before you know it!
I bought a smoker last summer and immediately fell in love. We have smoked pizza, brisket, burgers, summer sausage, veggies, and nuts. My very favorite of all the smoked meats is still pulled pork! It’s a little spicy, smoky, and so moist. When I smoke pork I usually smoke several roasts because it takes the same amount of time to smoke a few as it does to smoke one. And my tight wad self likes knowing I’m getting the most out of those smoker pellets. I also love having left over pulled pork! Who doesn’t like cooking once and having about 5 more meals out of the same meat? Seriously, who has time to cook something brand new every night of the week? Not me!
There is always pulled pork sandwiches and pork tacos. But, there is also Hawaiian Pulled Pork Nachos! I’m a chip lover so turning my pulled pork into nachos was a no brainer!
I always line my tray, plate, or platter with aluminum foil sprayed with nonstick baking spray before piling the toppings on. It makes clean up as easy as throwing the aluminum foil away. Can’t beat that!
Sprinkle a little grated cheese over the chips.
Next, add a little, or a lot, of your pulled pork. (If you don’t have a smoker, no worries, just pick some pulled pork up at the grocery store or check out this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork.) My pulled pork already had a little barbecue sauce mixed in with it, which is delicious but not necessary. You decide!
Add some beans. They are cheap and delicious. Besides what are nachos without beans?
Pineapple is the ingredient that makes these nachos amazing! Trust me, you are going to love it! Get carried away here if you want. Add olives, diced jalepenos, green onions, or anything else you can think of!
Drizzle a little barbeque sauce over the whole creation! Oh my, the sauce makes me want dive in!
Repeat layers as many times as you want making sure grated cheese is the final layer. Lots of grated cheese! Maybe even a couple different kinds of grated cheese!
Stick the whole baby in the oven for a few minutes to get everything all warm and melted together.
Done! Just like that! I want to know if these nachos last past the first kickoff at your house!
