Ingredients

For the pork

  • 1/4 Pound cooked pork butt, shredded
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 Drop liquid smoke
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Cholula Regular hot sauce

For the nachos

  • 1/4 Cup sour cream
  • 1/4 Tablespoon avocado, chopped
  • 2 Drops Cholula Chili Lime Hot Sauce
  • 4 Ounces yellow corn tortilla chips
  • 1/2 Cup cheese sauce
  • 1/2 Cup pico de gallo

Directions

For the pork

Combine the shredded pork with the rest of the ingredients and simmer in a sauce pan until the sugar melts and the flavors are well incorporated, about 15 minutes. Set aside.

For the nachos

To make the avocado-sour cream sauce, combine the sour cream, avocado, and Cholula sauce in a food processor and purée until smooth. Set aside.

In a bowl, add the tortilla chips and pour the cheese sauce evenly on top. Top the cheese with the Kalua pork, followed by the pico de gallo. Finish with a few drizzles of the avocado-sour cream sauce.

Nacho Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Nacho Cooking Tip

When preparing appetizers try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.

Nacho Wine Pairing

Malbec, syrah/shiraz, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, primitivo, or carménère with meat- and bean-based dishes; viognier or grüner veltliner with seafood dishes.
