Sweet Pork Nachos

We have these two places here in Utah called Cafe Rio and Costa Vida. They are two different restaurants but very similar in menu options. They are both INSANELY delicious and one of my favorite places to eat!

My favorite meat at both these places is called Sweet Pork. The flavor is HEAVENLY!

I used a copy cat meat recipe (you can find that recipe along with sever other copy cat recipes from that restaurant HERE on my blog) Trust me, you will want to check out those recipes :)

These nachos were a HIT! Everyone couldn’t get enough of them! It was a super simple meal to make and I am sure your family/company will love them just as much as we do!

    Living in Georgia I've tried to bring Cafe Rio here! We miss it!!! Great idea to use enchilada sauce - I've never used that. Do you use red or green enchilada sauce?

    I am wondering too if you can use green or red enchilada sauce. Thanks!

    Could you substitute a different ingredient for the Coke?
