  • 1 bag of tortilla chips do yourself a favor and DO NOT use the restaurant style thin chips, by the thicker corn chips
  • 2 cups bbq pulled pork
  • can of hatch green chilis

For the white sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups medium cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Pinch of salt

For toppings

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Sliced black olives
  • sliced fresh serrano peppers (seeds removed
  • sliced pickled jalapenos
  • Finely chopped red onions
  • Sliced green onions
  • salsa
  • sour cream
  • guacamole


To make the cheese sauces

  1. In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour until a thick paste forms. Whisk for about 4 minutes until the roux is a bit colored and smells a little nutty, you want to cook the raw flour taste out of it, but you don't want to burn it. Whisk in the 2 cups of milk and bring the mixture to a simmer. You want the mixture to just bubble up, this will take about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cheese, a cup at a time, until it all melts and is totally smooth. Whisk in chili powder and a pinch of salt. Keep warm.

To make the nachos

  1. Heat the oven to 400.
  2. Warm the pork in the oven, a saucepan or the microwave.
  3. Lay half the chips in a single layer on a cookie sheet or a cast iron pan. Only put enough chips on for a single layer. Throw them in the oven for about three minutes. Pull from the oven and spoon half the cheese sauce onto the chips. Layer the rest of the chips on top and put back in the oven for three more minutes. Pull out again and spoon the remaining cheese sauce on top. Put the pork on top and pop back in the oven just for like two more minutes and get the rest of the toppings ready. Pull out from the oven and top with everything EXCEPT the salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
