A couple months ago, I made a bunch of grilled pork loin and we had it for dinner one night. The next day, I asked Troy if he could put together dinner with the leftover pork loin. He absolutely blew my mind with a homemade BBQ sauce that was the best BBQ sauce that I had ever had. He made it again for this pulled pork nachos and let me tell you, you're in luck with a winner of a recipe!!

Troy actually came up with this recipe himself earlier this year when we had leftover pork another time. I couldn't believe that he thought to use apples on nachos but was totally blown away with the idea. The nachos are different than your typical nachos with shredded BBQ pork, shredded cheese, sauteed vegetables and apples but they are completely delicious. I prefer to make the pork ahead of time for this dish and with the leftover pork, make these nachos. I love to make a large amount of shredded pork to eat with different meals through the week.

This is the perfect quick meal that is filling and tasty. While chips for dinner are not something that I would recommend every night, they are loaded with lean, protein packed shredded pork and lots of veggies so they are really quite a nutritious choice. Plus, the kids love them!

It is not spicy because the kids do not like spice yet but feel free to add in some cayenne, red pepper flakes or chipotle if you like your food spicier. Also, feel free to use whatever veggies you have on hand. I definitely recommend corn, bell peppers and onions. Zucchini, avocado and tomatoes would also be great!
