Ultra Pork Potato Nachos

I promised great leftovers from the Pork Shoulder Roast. And I deliver:


The are truly ultra nachos. Let me just list the delicious ingredients: pull-apart pork shoulder, crispy bacon, smoked cheddar, habanero pepper jack, sour cream, and cilantro topped over crispy thin potatoes sizzled in bacon grease. These are unbeatable!


You know its good when you pop it in the broiler for a few minutes and it comes out like this:


Perfect football food. Made up for the sucky Texans game :(

I don't have to say much more. You should make; it is obvious.
