Bacon & pineapple nachos with bbq “salsa”

I feel like if the FCC knew what I’m about to share, they’d require a public service announcement. Something like: Caution! These nachos may be habit forming. Because, um, they totally are. I made them last weekend as an experiment and–no joke–three bites in Jayce declared that they were, indeed, the world’s best nachos. In spite of the fact that Fridays aren’t a designated recipe sharing day here on The Spot, I had to push this post to the tippy top–you know, game day and all. And so, here you have it ladies and gentlemen, the Jayce-certified world’s best nacho recipe.

Bacon & pineapple nachos with bbq "salsa"

Sweet and salty flavor profiles collide in these bacon and pineapple-topped nachos. Pile on loads of melted cheese, fresh tomatoes and green onions and then top with a bbq “salsa” for a zesty finish. So easy but oh so insanely good. Enjoy!

Bacon & pineapple nachos with bbq "salsa"

Bacon & pineapple nachos with bbq “salsa”


  • 1 bag organic white corn chips
  • 2 cups cheese (I used a combo of pepper jack and cheddar)
  • 5 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce


  1. Combine barbecue sauce and sour cream in a small bowl and whisk until it comes together into a smooth and creamy sauce. If desired, place sauce into a condiment bottle for easy squirting. Otherwise, you can just use a spoon to drizzle sauce over nachos.
  2. Cover the bottom of a cast iron skillet in a (relatively) single layer of chips. Top with cheese, bacon and pineapple. Place skillet under broiler on high until cheese is melted. Remove from broiler. Add an additional layer of chips, cheese, salsa and pineapple and return skillet to broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from broiler. Top with tomatoes and green onions. Squirt or drizzle barbecue "salsa" over nachos. Serve immediately.

  1. These look like a must-try! Have you had the pulled pork nachos from Capt. Cook’s at the Poly? They look a lot like this. They were fabulous! Instead of chips, they’re made on a mix of fried wantons and housemade potato chips.

    1. I have not tried those, Leah, but it never hurts to add something on to my Disney wish list for next trip! Sounds yummy!

  2. Oooh yum! I’ve not made Sunday’s menu yet, these may make an appearance. I love that you double layered when baking. I hate the bare chips underneath.

  3. Do you think the bacon could be substituted for something in the vege/bean family? My husband is a vegetarian but he would love everything else in this dish.
