What’s more appropriate for game day food than Pulled Pork Nacho Bites? I mean they are throwing around the ole pig skin.. right?!

Nachos are the perfect game day food, and these pulled pork nacho bites are so good they’ll be gobbled up in no time. If you’ve got a crowd over you might want to make a doubled up batch. These are way less messy to eat during the game than just throwing out a platter of nachos where everyone’s digging in and stuff is falling all over the place. It takes a little more time, so if you can grab someone to help, it’s bonding time before the game starts, of course.

Now game day around our neck of the woods, in St. Louis, has left our town feeling a bit mixed these days. Let’s just say we’re still in a bit of a healing process. We first had our Football Cardinals, who moved to Arizona. Then we got the Rams for a few years, along with a big Superbowl win from our beloved Kurt Warner (who was just inducted into the Football Hall of Fame…YAY!).

Kurt Warner will always be loved in St. Louis for what he has done and continues to do around our area. He still comes here to do big fundraisers and collect coats for the poor. His team though… I think I can honestly say no one around here is cheering for the Rams any longer, although we did go back to cheering on the Cardinals when Kurt played there. There’s a lot of Kansas City Chiefs fans in the area, along with a huge following for the Saints too. I have both of them on my house during the holidays (well, I have a Saints fan at home every day)…and the one odd Panthers fan. Why has the NFL not called to offer me a commercial?

This is one of those recipes you can use what you like. If I would have had some black olives I would of used those too! Some sliced jalapenos would be good, or maybe you like green onion instead of red. Use whatever your little heart desires!

Now for the pork I used this recipe for a couple different dinners we first had the Perfect Pork Roast. We used a smoker, but you can also slow roast it in the oven or slow cooker. It’s enough for us to get a few good meals out of, another good one everyone loves is my Roast Pork and Garlic Sauce.

No matter what team your cheering for, these little Pulled Pork Nacho Bites will put a smile on everyone’s face!
