We're a nacho lovin' family. Especially #1 Son. I think I could put dryer lint over tortilla chips and he'd eat it. So when my DIL told me about these nachos, I knew I had to try them. So yum! There's something about bbq sauce and tortillas that makes me really happy! The original recipe used Romain lettuce as base which was just okay for me but if you want to leave that off, it wouldn't hurt my feelings. Just start with the chips as your bottom layer and go from there. But really....these are SO tasty!
Memphis Style Nachos
1 small pork roast ~ about 2 pounds, cooked and pulled or ready made pulled pork
1 19-ounce bottle Memphis style barbeque sauce
8 ounces mozzarella cheese ~ grated
1 bag tortilla chips
1/2 cup diced red onion
4 green onions ~ chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
2 cups cheese
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. (Yes...500 degrees) Wrap a rimmed cookie sheet in foil.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook for a minute or two.
Add milk and cook until thick. Stir in the cheese until melted.
Spread lettuce over cookie sheet.
Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese and half of the red onion over the lettuce.
Then spread the chips over the lettuce.
In a medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup of the bbq sauce with the cooked, pulled pork.
Warm the remaining sauce.
Scatter the pork over the chips and bake for 10 minutes.
Drizzle warmed sauce over the nachos.
