How to Make BBQ Nachos
(For the full printable recipe, scroll to the bottom of the post.)
To start on these BBQ Nachos, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. You could use a higher temperature, or even broil these nachos, but the chips could burn a lot quicker so you’ll have to watch them a bit more.
Next, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. You could use a silicone mat as well.
Layer some of your favorite tortilla chips in a nice large even layer on top of the pan.
Sprinkle about half to three-fourths of the cheese on top of the chips.
We shredded the cheese ourselves and used a combination of white cheddar and Monterrey Jack. You can buy preshredded cheese, but if you shred it yourself it tends to melt better which is perfect for nachos.
Spoon some of the pulled pork that has been mixed with BBQ sauce on top of the chips and cheese. Or a fun alternative would be this Korean BBQ Beef for an Asian version.
Also, top with some onions (check out my pickled onion recipe). We keep a big jar in our fridge at most times, but if you don’t have any or don’t want to make them (but seriously give them a try…), pickled jalapenos from the grocery store would be great too.
You can add your other favorite toppings. Black beans and/or corn would also be great additions!
Sprinkle a little more cheese on top of everything. The top layer of cheese helps keep everything together!
The quantities in the recipe card below are approximate. Please use your best judgment and personal preference when building these nachos.
Bake the nachos for about 5-10 minutes in the middle of your oven. Be sure the cheese is fully melted and the chips are warm before removing from the oven.
If you lined the pan, you should be able to slide the nachos right off the pan and place on a serving platter, a large cutting board, or just right on the table if you’re hungry. haha!
Top these BBQ Nachos with your favorite nacho toppings. We like to drizzle a little BBQ sauce on top as well as green onion.
Cilantro and sour cream would also be great!
Be sure to serve these nachos right away. The longer they sit, the more soggy they will get.
