Warm and Cheesy Pulled Pork Dip


      When I posted the recipe for Pulled Pork Enchilada Verde Soup I promised a super amazing dip recipe using some more leftover pulled pork.  I think this leftover pulled pork is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to have on hand.  I actually just bought a couple more pork butts because they were on sale so cheap at the store... now I just need to talk my dad or brother into smoking them for me!  If nothing else, I can always braise it I suppose!




     Anyway, back to the dip.  We made soups and snacks for New Year's Eve this year.  This was my snack contribution to the menu.  The smoky pulled pork played nicely with just a bit of heat, plenty of cheese and a bit of sweet corn.  Our guests weren't quite sure what to think when I told them it was pulled pork dip, but I heard how addictive it was more than once as people went back to get more.  I love that!


    I found it quite addictive too.  It was great on tortilla chips and even good on pretzel rods the next day.  It would be a perfect starter for a BBQ, great for a tailgate, super for game night and just plain darn delicious when you need that perfect balance of gooey cheese, salt, sweet and heat.  (So basically all of the time!)

  3. Oh this would be finger licking good. A big crowd pleaser at he Super Bowl potluck lunch here at work. I'll have to put it in a slow cooker to serve it warm here. I think it would work, don't you?

    1. I had to invite an army of people to share with me so I could save myself! I still had more than I probably should have, but less than I would have. So, I'll consider it a win!

    1. It's one of my favorite ways to feed a crowd and one of my favorite leftovers to play with! I love it when my brother smokes the pork, but I have a fun idea I want to try with a braise. So many ideas, so little time!
