Pork Nachos

(Simple and Easy) PORK NACHOS

So, what is the staple food of any gameday get-together. Most people will name some finger food or appetizer. But the one dish that everyone will go to will be the NACHOS. Hands Down this is the dish that stories will be told about, if it is good. 


Well, here at Elite BBQ smokers we are here to share New Techniques and Recipes for outdoor cooking. So, we want to share with you a recipe for the Perfect Ultimate 

 and most memorable Pork Queso Nachos ever made. First, we must give a shoutout to Crove Food Co. for sharing a new technique on YouTube and Tiktok. They showed a version of their Nacho that inspired us.


But we wanted to add to this idea and make it our own. How did we do that you ask, well let me give you a brief overview. 

1st, we wanted to make the tortilla chips on the Pellet Smoker instead of frying them. 

2nd, we made our Mexican Relish (without the onions by request) 

3rd, we made out Queso Cheese with Vermont Extra Sharp, Black Creek Double Smoked Cheddar Cheese and BelGioioso Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Pearls. 

4th, we poured the Queso into a mixing bowl and then started layering all the ingredients into the bowl 1 layer at a time. 

5th, we then used Crove Food Co technique and flipped the whole thing over into a Cast Iron pan. 


Now this made the Perfect Ultimate and most amazing Pork Queso Nachos there has ever been. You have to give this one a try and it will be the talk of any Gameday or Get together for years to come.
