Imagine this… You’re sitting around the campfire, drinking a couple beers and joking with your friends. Then someone says, “dinner’s ready” and you all gather around a large cast iron skillet. The aluminum foil gets peeled off and you instantly smell the best campfire dinner smell ever – barbeque.
Now I’m turning that imagined experience into a reality for you with these campfire barbeque nachos! Featuring Pig of the Month meats, all you have to worry about is preparing shredded chicken prior to packing up and heading to your campsite. Then simply assemble all the ingredients, cover with foil and cook directly on the campfire until everything’s warm and the cheese is melted.
You’ll end up loving the three-meat combination on these campfire nachos so much, you’ll be building fire pits in your backyard just for an excuse to eat them on a weeknight! DIG IN!
INSTRUCTIONS: Layer the tortilla chips on the bottom of the cast iron skillet, filling it approximately 1/3 of the way full. Add the pulled pork, brisket and pulled chicken in an even layer on top of the chips.
Top the meats with black beans, sliced jalapeños, and cheese. Cover the cast iron skillet with aluminum foil and place directly on the campfire. Cook until the dish is warmed through and the cheese is melted, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. You can also cook this under the broiler on low for approximately 5 minutes at home!
Remove from heat, peel off the foil and top with the fresh tomato chunks. Serve immediately with either barbeque sauce or salsa and hot sauce.

If you are planning on celebrating St. Patrick's Day in any way this year, do it with these Ultimate Loaded Irish Skillet Nachos made with Pig of the Month BBQ Corned Beef. Forget the corned beef and cabbage (no one really likes cabbage as a side, do they?), these nachos are the best way to honor the land of the leprechauns! Regardless of when St. Patrick's Day falls during the week, you'll always find me celebrating with some corned beef and Guinness. Perhaps it's an homage to my Irish heritage, or perhaps it's just that I'll take any excuse to celebrate life with beer and some seriously delicious meat.
No matter why or how you celebrate this year, you owe it to yourself to include these Ultimate Loaded Irish Skillet Nachos. They are loaded up with thick-cut potato slices, a heaping helping of corned beef, cheese, avocado, sour cream and pickled jalapeños. It's the tastiest St. Patrick's Day recipe you'll come across, just trust us on this one.
And while you're digging in, remember to read what to eat before and after drinking so you can save yourself from a hangover tomorrow (bonus: this recipe covers those for you... Just saying - miracle recipe).
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, toss the sliced potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper to coat. Place the potato slices on the greased baking sheet in one even layer. Bake for 15 minutes, flip the slices over and bake for another 15 minutes.
To assemble the nachos, add the potato slices to the bottom of a large cast iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet. Add the corned beef on top, followed by the pepper jack cheese and cheddar cheese. Place under the broiler set to high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
Top with mashed avocado, pickled jalapeños, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, green onion and sour cream. Serve immediately.
