Hi friends!

Just popping in with a quick recipe idea for you. It’s actually more of an idea than an actual recipe….but it’s become a new favorite so I snapped a few pictures to share with you!

Last week while we were at the grocery store, we noticed they were having a sale on pork shoulder. Pulled pork sounded good to both of use so I grabbed one. However, instead of the typical 5 pound size we normally get, the smallest one they had was 9 pounds. Since it was on sale, I was ok with it…but I knew that meant I would have to get creative this week and figure out how to use up all of that pork.

I cooked it all and froze some. We had bbq pulled pork sandwiches and tacos and I still had some leftover so I whipped up these nachos for lunch one day. They’re really not all that different from the loaded sweet potatoes I make as one of my go-to meals, but the mini waffles make them just a little bit more fun to eat!

The waffles themselves are actually just the base for my Guacamole Waffle Bites. I just arranged them like chips and topped them like nachos! These are super easy to customize. Top them with whatever you have in the fridge – leftover pulled pork, leftover chicken or leave the meat off and make them vegetarian! I also added onions, peppers, black beans, cheese, avocado and salsa!

Here’s how to make them:

Recipe Notes
These can be eaten using the mini waffles like chips but can also be eaten with a knife and fork. You can easily double the waffle recipe to make a bigger batch.
