Pulled Pork Nachos with Chipotle Slaw and Pineapple Salsa

Pulled Pork Nachos with Chipotle Slaw and Pineapple Salsa

When we were in Hawaii, we enjoyed some amazing nachos that were plum full of pulled pork, great homemade bbq sauce, a pineapple pico style salsa, and some coleslaw to top it off. We split a plate amongst friends with some beers and then ended up having to order another plate because they were just THAT good. I have been wanting to recreate them ever since we got back, but I just haven’t. 

Last week I had some pulled pork just asking to be used up and immediately those nachos popped into my head. And amazingly, I had almost everything I needed for them ON HAND! Love when you find a supper win like that! 

Pulled Pork Nachos with Pineapple Salsa-4

One bite and we were right back in the Islands! If only the weather here mimicked the weather in Hawaii! 😉

This recipe can be as simple as you want to make it or as “homemade” as you want to make it! You can use your favorite bbq sauce and bagged coleslaw mix! I used up some leftover coleslaw mix I chopped up a couple days prior and our FAVORITE bbq sauce from Montana. Pauline’s Rocky Mountain Premium BBQ Sauce! It’s so good!! You could even add some pineapple to some pico de gallo salsa if you wanted, but it didn’t take me very long to mix up the pineapple salsa. And do yourself a favor and just use fresh pineapple, the taste is so much better than the canned stuff! 

I didn’t include any measurements for putting together the nachos. Feel free to adapt and use as much as you’d like! That’s the beauty of nachos!!
