  • 4 Scallions chopped
  • 1 lb Bacon cut into ½-in pieces
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Jalapeno cut into coins, seeds removed

For Potatoes

  • lb Russet Potatoes cut into wedges
  • ¾ cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Paprika

For Cheese Sauce

  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp Flour

  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 4oz can Diced Jalapenos

For the Pork

  • 4 Pork Chops boneless
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions
 

  • Prepare all of the ingredient. Preheat oven to 425 deg.
  • In a bowl, combine ingredients for potatoes and toss until well coated. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and put potatoes on sheet in a single layer. Put into oven to cook for 25 minutes.
  • In a frying pan over medium high heat, add bacon pieces and cook until crispy. Remove to paper towel covered plate. Reserve bacon grease in pan.
  • Season pork chops with listed seasonings and add them to bacon grease in frying pan. Cook for 7 minutes on each side and remove to rest for at least 5 minutes. Then chop into bite-sized pieces. Reserve remaining bacon grease in pan.
  • While pork is cooking, start the cheese sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, add butter and garlic powder. Once melted whisk in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken brother and cook for 3 minutes. Whisk in heavy cream and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in cheese by the handful and cook another 2 minutes. Stir in jalapenos. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until ready to build nachos.
  • Increase heat on frying pan with bacon grease to medium high. Once potatoes are done in oven, quickly fry them in the bacon grease to crisp them up. Just 2-3 minutes. Remove to a paper towel covered plate.
  • You can build nachos on individual plates or a family style platter. Start with potatoes, pour cheese sauce over and sprinkle with pork and bacon. Pour a little more cheese sauce over then top with scallions and jalapeno coins.
