I *love* Mexican food. I've even written a mini ebook about it! I've even made my own nachos before – my Beef Nachos are made from a base of baked low carb tortillas that form the chip element. So I wasn't really looking for an alternative until I started pulling together a collection of recipes that use pork rinds.
But it got me thinking about other ways to use those tasty zero carb treats. I'd made BBQ flavor pork rinds before (you *can* buy them already seasoned, but they're loaded with sugar) and I wondered about making a cheese version, and before you know it I thought about pork rind nachos!
I decided not to add meat in the traditional way, but settle for “just” cheese, salsa, sour cream, jalapeños, and avocado! For the pork rinds themselves, you could use a large ready-to-eat-bag, or cook your own in the microwave. I've tried it both ways, and I think the “freshness” of the microwave pork rinds is slightly better. But both are good!
How to Make Pork Rind Nachos
Sprinkle over some shredded cheese (chihuahua or a Mexican blend would work well). Place under a preheated broiler (overhead grill) for just a few minutes, watching carefully to ensure that the cheese or pork rinds do not burn.
Remove the plate from the oven, and add sliced jalapeños (pickled or fresh) and a diced avocado.
Finish with low carb salsa and sour cream, and serve immediately.
Get the napkins ready and enjoy these crunchy, cheesy, creamy, spicy, pork rind nachos!
