As a kid, I often fantasized about all of the foods I saw people eating in movies or on television, but weren’t things we ate in my Nigerian household. Nachos were high on that list. When I finally got an opportunity to try nachos for the first time, I couldn’t believe what I had been missing out on!

Sheet pan nachos are such a fun, easy way to make a quick meal for a group of people, and pulled pork nachos will forever be my favorite. Lean on this recipe any time you’ve got pulled pork on hand, whether homemade or store-bought.

What Ingredients Do I Need for Pulled Pork Nachos? 

In addition to pulled pork, you’ll need your favorite brand of tortilla chips, sharp cheddar cheese, black beans, pickled jalapeños, barbecue sauce, and sour cream. For a pop of green, feel free to garnish your nachos with cilantro.

What’s the Best Way to Layer Pulled Pork Nachos? 

In order to get a little bit of everything in each bite, you’ll want to divide the ingredients between two layers. Spread half the chips on the sheet pan and top with half the ingredients (minus the sour cream). Then add another layer of chips and repeat.

How Do You Reheat Pulled Pork Nachos?

My favorite way to reheat these nachos is by covering the sheet pan with foil, then baking at 300ºF for about 10 minutes. Covering the pan with foil helps to keep the nachos from burning or getting too crispy on top.
