Redneck Nachos

 

Sometimes you just really need a cheat day. I tracked my diet and excersize using the fitness pal app this week. It was a really easy way to count my calories and monitor my fat/protein/carb intake. To reward my hard work throughout the week I decided to do a cheat meal tonight. I did make a few changes to the original recipe to slightly lighten it up, but my no means is this a healthy dinner.

If you need to satify that need for fat steak fries, hot gooey cheeses, tangy pulled pork and spicy jalepeno overload then look no further!

 

Redneck Nachos
( inspired by Atlanta’s Pig & Chick Restaurants )
What you need :
Steak cut fries (homemade or frozen)
Shredded cheese (I used cheddar and monterey jack)*
Pulled pork**
Your favorite BBQ sauce
Pickled jalapeños
Sour cream ***
Preheat oven to 400.
Bake or fry your steak fries until they are crispy on the outside, but still tender on the inside. Drain on paper towel and lightly season with salt and pepper. Fill your pan with the fries. I used my cuisinart 5 1/2 quart sautée pan. This is my all time favorite oven safe pan!
Cover the fries with the shredded cheeses, pork, bbq sauce and jalapeños.
Heat in the oven until all the cheese has melted and starts to bubble.
Serve with sour cream, hot sauce and extra BBQ sauce!
* feel free to substitute with 2% cheeses
** I will link my favorite pulled pork recipe. I prefer to use a loin to cut out all the extra fat usually found in pork shoulder
