Justin Timberlake’s Barbecued Nachos just in time for the Super Bowl

This Memphis-born mega star loves entertaining, his grandmother, (Sadie Bomar’s) Southern cooking, and hosting Sunday barbecues during football season. You just can’t take the Southern out of the STAR.
1 pound tortilla chips (or homemade potato chips)
Shredded barbecued pork, use as much or as little as you like
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup baked beans, drained
1 cup BBQ sauce
1 cup sour cream
1 bunch green onions, chopped
Sliced jalapenos, to taste or optional
Sweet pepper relish, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chips on large baking sheet and top with cheese, beans and BBQ sauce. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted; remove from oven and top with sour cream, jalapenos, sweet onion relish, and green onions. Suit your taste with mild or hot sauce, onions, no onions, etc.
Justin’s advice for a great party – "Make sure everyone has enough to eat--and booze on" One of his go-to cocktails is a Pepino, made from a line of tequila he launched several years ago and named in honor of the area code from his hometown of Memphis, 901 Tequila. In addition to the Barbecue Nachos, he often serves pretzel bite sandwiches, fennel salads, guacamole and chips, and flat-bread pizzas.

Justin’s parents still reside in Memphis and Justin is no stranger to Tennessee, even though he now calls LA home. He spent $16 million to renovate Mirimichi, an eco-friendly public golf facility he co-owns with his parents and the golf course where he learned to love the game as a boy. When he’s in Memphis he frequents Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken and The Store on the Hill, a family-owned barbecue joint where he’s been known to pick up a tub of hand-pulled and smoked pork, a tub of coleslaw, and a tub of baked beans that can easily feed a crowd of twenty. He even opened a home-style soul food restaurant in NYC called Southern Hospitality. Join me in wishing Justin a happy birthday January 31st!  And if you're ever in Memphis, stop by Gus's and you'll know why it's world famous.

The picture shows meat in the dish but the recipe doesn't call for any meat....what gives? I have never heard of nachos with just baked beans for the protein. =/

It's pulled barbecue pork but he just didn't list the amount. It's up to you and I have used hickory smoked chicken that is chopped into small pieces. Hope you enjoy Kellie.

When do we add the meat?

Libby Murphy said...

Add the meat with the beans and top with sauce. You can put half Of the meat with beans and sauce and half on top of cheese. Then add toppings when it comes out of the oven.
