Black Bean & Carnitas Nachos

07 Jun


Here’s my stab at recreating the nachos I found at “The Rum House” in New Orleans. Try it with friends and enjoy.


  • freshly fried corn tortillas chips. see my recipe under “Corn Tortilla Chips”
  • Black Beans see my recipes under “Crockpot Beer Black Beans”
  • shredded pork, see my recipe under “Crockpot Pork Carnitas”
  • “Cilantro Jalapeno Crema”, see my recipe
  • Queso Fresco, crumbled
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Red Onion, diced

Preheat your oven to 350 and spray a baking dish with pan spray.

Put a heaping layer of fried corn tortilla chips, then sprinkle the shredded pork carnitas and black beans over the chips. Drizzle the Cilantro Jalapeno Crema, then add the crumbled Queso Fresco and shredded Cheddar Cheese over all of that. Sprinkle with the half of the diced red onion then start the process all over.

Once completely assembled bake until the cheese is melted and starts to bubble a bit.

Suggestions: Take this recipe one step further and serve with a dollop of sour cream, guacamole, slice jalapenos and diced tomatoes.
