Serves: 10 servings
Pulled Pork
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 4 pounds of lean pork (I used boneless country style pork ribs)
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • Juice of 1 lime
Plantain Nachos
  • 3 plantains, peeled and thinly sliced on the bias (about ⅛ inch thick)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ⅓ cup black beans
  • ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
Optional toppings
  • ⅓ cup Mango Tomatillo Guacamole
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Pico de gallo
  • Chopped green onion
  • Extra lime juice
  • Sour cream
  1. For the pork: Combine the chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small dish. Rub the mixture over the pork, coating entirely. Place the pork in a slow cooker and add in the chicken broth and the lime juice. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for up to 10 hours until the pork is fork tender. When cooking is complete, shred the pork and return it to the cooking juices in the slow cooker. Stir to combine.
  2. For the plantain nachos: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the plantain slices on a lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Keep the oven on while you assemble the nachos.
  3. Arrange a layer of plantains on the baking sheet and add the black beans cheese, and about 1½ cups of pulled pork. Place the nachos back in the oven for about 4 minutes until the cheese melts. Top the nachos with more of your desired toppings.
You will use about half of the total amount of shredded pork for this recipe.
