BBQ PORK NACHOS - sweet, salty, cheesy - 'nuff said


This sweet, salty, crunchy, cheesy, gooey masterpiece is proudly brought to you by...drumroll, please... Leftovers!
I had loads of BBQ Pork leftover from my Dad's birthday party, onions from my garden (I like to use up the green tops- they're just as good as green onions and why waste something you worked so hard to grow!) and the flowers and tops from my cilantro, as it bolted and I trimmed them all off.
If you need a lunch for work or a quick supper, this dish is sure to please and will empty your fridge of leftovers in the best way possible.
time: about 10 minutes
makes: 2 servings, can be easily doubled, etc,
3 cups tortilla chips
3/4- 1 cup BBQ pork, chicken, or beef
1 small bunch cilantro (I used the tops of mine, since they had bolted)
1 onion top or 3 green onions
1/2 cup shredder sharp cheddar cheese
You can also add your favorite things: sweet corn, sour cream, lettuce, radishes, the possibilities are really endless!
Just spread out the tortilla chips on a microwave-safe plate or a cookie sheet.  Top with BBQ meat, cheese, onions, and whatever else you like.  Pop it in the microwave until warmed through and the cheese melts, about 2 minutes.  If using the oven, bake at 400' for 5-10 minutes, watching closely.
Pull them out and top with cilantro and any other greens or things that aren't good when ovened and wilty.
Watch them disappear and try not to feel shamed if you ate them all. So. Good.
