Barbeque Pork. Nachos.  Cheesy, starchy, goodness.


Sure, you could have the regular old nachos for your Superbowl party, but imagine serving up a bowl of THIS.

Chips made from deep fried wontons, piled high with spicy pork barbeque, tomatoes, cilantro, and a decadent pepperjack cheese sauce.

You’ll never look at nachos the same way again.

Luckily for you (and for me), when I was first served these nachos at The Greenbrier, I asked the chef for the recipe.  And he shared!  It’s terribly simple, quick to to put together, and the ultimate in delicious.
