When you think of nachos, maybe a Caribbean flare isn’t what you think of, but if you did, you would love it. These Caribbean Jerk Pork Nachos could be an appetizer for game day, or even as the main entree.
Add a side item such as this Corn Salad for a complete meal. I also love this just as a dip with chips. Very fresh tasting.
When serving, I like to use mason jars for all of the toppings. Squeeze bottles for any dressing and sour cream is less messy too.
Label or make signs for your toppings.
Most people think of Jerk seasoning with chicken, but using pork from my BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos, it just adds another flavor. Find the recipe here. The Coke cooked in it adds a slight hint of sweetness.
Nachos are one of those things you make to your liking. Add what you like and leave off what you don’t.
- Start with Pork from the BBQ Pork Nachos.
