Pulled Pork Potato Chip Nachos are an easy appetizer or meal that your whole family will love made with kettle cooked potato chips and zesty pulled pork!
Truth be told, I’m not much of a potato chip eater. Unless they are kettle cooked. There is something about that extra thick chip goodness that just knocks me off my feet. And do you know which ones are my favorite? The folded over ones! Why do they taste so much better?
I’ve even been known to dump the whole bag out just to eat the folded over chips and then put them back in the bag for hubby to munch on the rest. Can they just make a bag of folded over kettle cooked chips already?
So this leaves me with tons of leftover, sad potato chips. I needed something to do with them and got this idea from a gastro pub I visited in Florida last fall. Why not use kettle chips for a nacho base?
Genios! Pulled Pork Potato Chip Nachos were a match made in heaven! Kettle cooked chips offer a sturdy base to hold up heavier toppings like BBQ pulled pork, cheese and fresh veggies. The topping possibilities are endless, for sure! I like to pop mine in my favorite all-purpose, I use this thing for everything cast iron skillet, but you can also use a sheet pan for larger batches.
