Recipe: Super Double Decker Nachos
This is the recipe for my super double decker nachos. I'm a Jersey girl and love the Phillies. Everytime they are in a post game I make something. Nachos happen to be a popular request among my friends. This is one of those recipes that you can adjust easily and things aren't really measured. I'm including pics for most steps instead of including exact measurements.
You will need:
Green Onions/Scallions (chopped)
1 red or yellow onion (chopped)
1 tub of Curley's Pulled Pork or Lloyd's Shredded Pork
McCormicks Barbeque Seasoning
Tostitos Restaurant Style Chips (1 bag)
Tostitos Queso Cheese
Penn Maid Sour Cream
Kraft Shredded Mexican Style Taco Cheese
1 Tomato (Jersey is preferable)
Glass cooking pan/cassarole pan
Optional ingredients: (not shown)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat up your pulled or shredded pork in the microwave.
For the nachos, I use a glass pan/cooking vessel for this because the presentation of the food is much nicer when it come out to guests. If you needed to you could use a regular pan.
Take your Tostitos chips and spread a layer on the bottom of your pan like this:
Take your pulled pork out of the microwave. Use a fork to put 1-2inch globs of pork on your nachos. Do the same with the tostitos cheese. (If you love refried beans you can put some cooked refried beans on your nachos now. Treat it the same way as the pork and cheese globbing it equally. I did not include refried beans here but I wanted to let you know it is an option.) Your bottom layer should now look like this:
Now take your chopped tomato and scallion/green onion and sprinkle it on the nachos. Remember the best nacho is a nacho that has most of the stuff on top of it. It should now look like this:
Now take your chopped onion and sprinkle it around the nachos just like the tomatos and scallions.
Take your BBQ seasoning and sprinkle it all over the nachos. Put just enough to flavor each chip.
Take the shredded cheese and sprinkle it all over the nachos. It may look like a lot now but once it melts down its perfect. It should look like this:
You are now finished the first layer. Repeat the steps above starting with adding the chips. Your last step is to add jalepeno. Just add them to the top of the entire nacho try. (You can also optionally add black olives in the same manner at this point but I did not do this in the following picture)Your nachos should now look like this:
Now its time to put these in the oven. Please note I do not include a time on this because this is something you will have to watch. Put the nachos in the center of the oven, close the door, turn on your over light, and watch. In less than a few minutes your cheese will get all melty. When the shredded cheese has melted down it's time to take it out of the oven.
Your final step is to add sour cream by globbing on the top of the nachos. You can add some additional cold/fresh chopped tomatoes at this point just for color on the top of the sour cream. It should look like this:
Make sure you have enough plates for everyone. I normally make one tray of this.. but recently my guest have been "coming hungry" to my house and I now usually have to make an additonal one. Just last night I made three trays for 12 people. They all went by the end of the 9th inning. I should mention..if you are going to make three trays you are going to need an additional bag of the chips.
I hope you like my first recipe I posted and I hope everyone has time to leave comments. Thanks for reading.
