These sheet pan bbq pulled pork nachos are seriously incredible! Great for watching the football game, pool parties, backyard barbecues, or when you are craving pub food.

Put your slow cooker to work to make the pulled pork. It’s sweet and delicious. Or go with traditional smoked pulled pork. Both are tasty!

Expert Tips

  • Use your favorite barbecue sauce. There are no answers when it comes to the sauce. I prefer sweeter sauces, but you could certainly use spicy.
  • Shred your own cheese. Don’t buy the bagged shreds! Instead, shred it yourself. It doesn’t take long and it makes a huge difference in the texture and flavor of the nachos.
  • Try different meat. If you don’t have pulled pork, you could use hamburger, grilled chicken, brisket, or pulled beef.

Frequently Asked Questions

What toppings can I add to the bbq nachos?

Any toppings you like will work. It’s best not to use anything that is too watery or it will make the chips soggy. Here are a few ideas to try:

  • Jalapenos
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa or Pico de Gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Cilantro
  • Green Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Oregano
  • Red onions
  • Lime Slices

What cheese is best for nachos?

Really, you can use any cheese you like, but I prefer sharp cheddar. Pepper Jack, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, and American are all good melty cheese options. The biggest thing is to choose a cheese that melts well.
