These Zesty Cast Iron Skillet Nachos are loaded with flavor! Topped with an incredible sour cream sauce, these are a great appetizer, snack, or even main meal!
My hubby and I love to smoke different meats! Anything from pork and brisket, to chicken, beef, and more! We typically smoke something on Sunday and either freeze the leftovers or find ways to use them in other dishes throughout the week!
Smoked, shredded meat, Zesty sour cream sauce, and tons of flavorful toppings are included on these Zesty Cast Iron Skillet Nachos!
I was cleaning out the freezer last week and came across a container of smoked pork. We had shredded it for BBQ sandwiches, but had TONS leftover to freeze. I decided to make a quick and easy dinner and have loaded nachos in the cast iron! I even threw together a new favorite sour cream sauce to drizzle on top!
We loaded our nachos up with cheese, meat, jalapenos, cilantro, and cheese….however, you can add any toppings desired! Perhaps bacon? Beans? Bell peppers? Tons of options available, just depends on what you have on hand, or if you want to make a trip to the store!
As for meat, if you don’t have smoked pork to use, you can also use chicken or beef. Basically any leftover meat you have, toss into these nachos to use up and enjoy!
Kick up the heat with some jalapenos, or keep it mild and omit! Toss into your cast iron (or a cookie sheet) and make clean up a breeze!
Football season has passed, but these nachos can be served at any occasion! The skillet keeps them warm until the last chip has been enjoyed, which is bound to be quick!
