My friends love it when I make this for any football or hockey game. Hope your family likes it too.

The pulled pork alone in these nachos is full-flavored and delicious. Once it cooks in the slow cooker, it falls apart beautifully. Mix that with BBQ sauce, cheese, and toppings and you have amazing pulled pork nachos. These are restaurant quality nachos you can make at home. If you have extra pulled pork, it will make a yummy sandwich. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
