For the past couple weeks it’s felt more like fall than it has summer here in Wisconsin. Just between you and me, one of my friends told me that she actually turned the heat on in her house last week. Crazy, right? Even with summer starting to come to a close, there’s a brand new season on the way and lots of things to look forward to. This time of year is actually a pretty exciting one for our family. School is back in session, it’s the beginning of a new football season for our Green Bay Packers and we have a big Labor Day celebration up at the lake that needs to happen yet before we officially transition out of summer into fall.
Believe it or not, my whole family has fall birthdays – me, my husband, our kids AND our family dog, Belle. September and October are crazy busy, and there are parties galore. If we’re not serving birthday cake we’re serving up yummy appetizers like these Pulled Pork Nachos at our Packer parties. It’s just a written rule.
Here’s’ a little tip if you host your own game day party. . .
You must have food (lots of it) and it needs to meet the following criteria:So, if you’re from Wisconsin, the cheese criteria just needs to be there. If you’re from outside of the Midwest, we may just let that last check box slide, but I certainly wouldn’t recommend it. When it comes to these nachos, they meet all of the game day food criteria – it’s check, check, check and check.
Let me introduce you to the star of the show, Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ.
And when I say star, what a star it is! Farm Rich has just introduced a new line of delicious, slow smoked, restaurant quality BBQ products. They contain all natural premium cuts of meat, slow cooked in the Farm Rich smokehouse for hours, then hand pulled and mixed with a custom blend of sauces to create the ultimate BBQ experience!
Here’s the deal. . .there’s no need to fire up your grill. The pork comes frozen in a convenient microwavable and oven-ready tray. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
The assembly of the nachos goes super quick. I used the microwave to heat the pork and then grabbed my cast iron skillet and began layering! Chips, pork, cheese and onions! It only takes about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt when you stick the skillet into the oven, and then the nachos are ready for tomatoes and anything else you’d like to throw on top. How about a few snips of green onion for garnish?
These nachos are perfect for serving on game day. . .or really. . .any day. Call them an appetizer, serve them as a meal! It doesn’t really matter, they fit either of those categories! Don’t you just love dishes like that?
You know what the best part is? YOU get to enjoy them, too! It’s just not right to be cooking away in your kitchen when a football game is going on and all of your guests are in the other room, glued to the TV. The convenience and simplicity of these nachos will ensure you’re right there with them cheering your team along.
