"For making this at home, you can dice up leftover steak, rotisserie chicken, or pork chops that you just have [and] simmer a little in the BBQ sauce before adding to the nachos," Rolnick says. "You can also spice up the nachos with some great tomatillo sauce and add diced avocado. I also like to serve with a cheesy polenta. I love drizzling the creamy polenta over the chips for added texture and flavor, especially those chips that may not be fully covered in BBQ or cheese."
As chef says, this recipe is all about versatility, and it's a great way to make the most out of leftover meats. Get ready to get messy and dig into these mouthwatering nachos. You won’t regret it!
