Superbowl Bites: Pulled Pork Nachos

Nachos are another go to game food for me.

Actually when we go to the bar to watch any sport, I always crave nachos.  The problem is the boy always wants wings, hence the Buffalo Chicken Nachos I made last year.  They were delicious, but this year was all about taking one dish and turning it into a couple of different things. 

That's where these nachos come in.  I had the Beer Braised Pulled Pork leftover, so why not turn it into a delicious tray of nachos?

That's how I think, anyway. 

These were quite tasty and I love the subtle heat the the jalapeno cheese adds, as well as the chipotle lime sour cream.  You can also use hot salsa for even more heat.  It's basically something you can customize to your taste, more salsa, less pork.  Whatever you and your guests feel like you can make.  

I'll absolutely be making nachos this Sunday, will you?  Please share your favorite recipes in the comments.
