Take-out Tuesday, Cheesy BBQ Pork & Corn Nachos

We cook a pork butt almost every week……. the males in my family could eat BBQ every day

Brisket, Chicken, Ribs, Pork Chops, anything they can slather with sauce 🍗

Pork Butt is a favorite because it’s so easy to throw on the grill or in the Crock Pot and let it cook low and slow all day.   You can also cook it ahead of time, pull it and then keep it warm in the slow cooker like this BBQ Pulled Pork below

We always cook a big one so there are plenty of  leftovers for a sandwich, just pile it on a toasty bun


or make a Potato Pig

You don’t have to use the standard tortilla chip, try something unexpected and different


Next time I’m going to use Microwave Potato Chips, they are easy peasy quick to make and would be divine with a BBQ pork topping

Don’t forget the corn,  BBQ’s perfect partner


Add some green onions or peppers and diced or grated cheese like Cheddar or Smoked Gouda
