You won’t find any bright orange pseudo-cheese or microwave instructions here. Use your favorite slow cooker (I use a Crock-Pot) to whip up a much tastier alternative: Cuban Nachos With White Cheese Sauce. It’s like a pulled pork sandwich in nacho form!
It really is a shame that most people in the United States only think of Mexican and Tex-Mex when they hear the phrase “Latin American food.” Not that there aren’t plenty of fabulous Mexican and Tex-Mex recipes out there–we at Tastee Recipe have shared plenty with you in our time. But if that is ALL that you think Latin America has to offer, you’re really missing out! I was fortunate enough to grow up in an area just close enough to other parts of the Latin world (I spent most of my formative years on the Gulf Coast) to know better, but even I fall into that trap, sometimes, since so many dine-out options where I live now ARE Mexican or Tex-Mex places. I really was happy to come across this reminder that, hey, the rest of Latin America has some really great flavors, too!
It was also nice to see a nacho recipe that called for pork instead of beef. Hey, I love those beef nachos, too, but they can be more than a bit greasy, sometimes, not to mention making the nachos feel a bit heavy in your stomach. “The other white meat” is a nice, lower-fat, lower-grease alternative. And trust me, with the savory assortment of spices in this recipe, and that delicious homemade white cheese sauce, you don’t need that extra fat to feel very satisfied.
