Loaded Carnita Skillet Nachos on the Grill

It’s already getting quite warm here in Arizona. The kids have been in the pool quite few times already and I know once school gets out, that’s where they spend most of their time! I try to keep that in mind when I make my meal plan each week during the summer. I try to put as many outdoor meals made on the grill as I can on my plan. These nachos are one of my favorite things to make for the kids. They are so versatile and can be changed up so many different ways! For these nachos I used Del Real carnitas warmed in the microwave, and a bunch of fun toppings. We had beans on the side as well since that’s always what my daughter requests!Loaded-nachos

You’ll want to preheat your grill on low. Grab your cast iron skillet and place layer of chips in the bottom. Top it with cheese. Continue this step two more times until the skillet is full of chips and cheese.Loaded-nachos

Take your skillet out and place it on the grill for approximately 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted. While your chips are on the grill, warm up the carnitas according to the package instructions and cut up all of your toppings.Loaded-nachos

Remember to use pot holders when taking your skillet off of the grill.Loaded-nachos

Top your chips with the carnitas and then finish with the rest of the toppings!





Hopefully this gets your in the mood for the upcoming summer and spending a ton of time outdoors. I know we’re looking forward to it!
