Green Chili Carnitas Nachos

This is one of those “make it up as you go” recipes.  We don’t really have exact ingredients because you can add or delete ingredients you like on your nachos.

DSC01589Ingredients:

2 cups cooked pork carnitas meat or any cooked meat you desire

1 8-ounce cream cheese

1 cup green chili salsa

1 bag of tortilla chips

1 8-ounce bag shredded Mexican cheese blend

Toppings:

Guacamole

Salsa

Tomatoes

Green onions

Sour cream

DSC01582Take the first 3 ingredients: cooked meat, cream cheese and green salsa…

DSC01583Place all in a mixing bowl.  Using an electric mixer, mix ingredients together, shredding the meat.

DSC01584Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Cover a large baking sheet with tortilla chips.  Spoon meat mixture on top.

DSC01585Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.  Place in the oven for 20 minutes.

DSC01587While the nachos are in the oven, work on the toppings.  We made a quick guacamole with fresh avocados, lemon juice, jalapeno, onion and tomato.  You can also use ready made guacamole.

DSC01588Remove nachos from the oven.  Add desired toppings: we put on salsa, fresh tomatoes, green onion, guacamole and sour cream.
