When I tell you that these loaded nachos are some of the best nachos I’ve ever made (or tasted), I kid you not!

They’re super simple to make, too, and can be made with pantry staples and leftovers to boot. Talk about a winning combination!

The ingredient list:

  • nacho chips
  • pulled pork (leftovers work great)
  • tomato
  • green bell pepper
  • red onion
  • corn (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  • black beans
  • pepper jack cheese

Kitchen tools and equipment needed:

How long does it take to make these nachos from start to finish?

Since most of the ingredients are either leftovers or pantry items, these easy and colorful nachos take about 10 minutes to prepare, and 20 minutes in the oven.

So it’s approximately 30 minutes total before you’ll be doing some serious munching!

Can store-bought pulled pork be used for this recipe?

Yes, not a problem.

And if the only kind of store-bought pulled pork you can find already has BBQ sauce, use it! That will only add another taste and dimension to these already delicious nachos!

You’ll notice in the video that when I made this recipe I used some leftover pork I had from when I made my tender and flavorful slow cooker pulled pork.

I love that slow-cooker recipe for pulled pork so much. The last time I made it I specifically knew I wanted to make these pulled pork nachos with the leftovers, so I stored a few cups of it in my fridge for a few days until I was ready to make the nachos.

So, IF you’re also planning to make your own pulled pork for these loaded pulled pork nachos, please plan accordingly and make the pulled pork at least a day before you plan to make the nachos.

Can these loaded nachos be made in an air fryer?

Yep, they sure can!

However, depending on the size of your air fryer, you’ll probably need to scale back the ingredients quite a bit OR make the full recipe of nachos, but in batches.

Set the air fryer for 400-degrees and cook for 10-12 minutes, depending on the amount of nachos made, and check frequently to prevent burning.

How long will these nachos keep in the refrigerator?

If kept an in air-tight container, loaded pulled pork nachos will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

What is the best way to reheat pulled pork nachos?

What you’re looking for when reheating nachos is that they retain their crunch factor.

The best way to do this is to reheat them in either an oven, or in an air fryer.

Preheat the oven to 400-degrees and place the leftover nachos evenly onto a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 7-10 minutes.

If using an air fryer, place the nachos in an even layer into the fryer and cook at 400-degrees for approximately 5-7 minutes.

Can pulled pork nachos be frozen?

I wouldn’t recommend it.

Can other cheese be used for this recipe?

Sure thing! Use your favorite if pepper-jack isn’t to your liking.

Also, please feel free to substitute or add-in other ingredients that you crave on your nachos.

After all, the recipe ingredients are only suggestions. Have fun tailoring these nachos to your tastes and preferences.
