Pulled Pork Nachos with Chipotle Lime Créma

My husband and I are obsessed with the movie Nacho Libre. The first Halloween our son could walk, I made a Nacho costume for him, and it was awesome. We quote it all the time and giggle without fail.

We also happen to love nachos. Give us all the nachos.

Recipe Notes

PRESSURE COOKER: Cook pork as directed above, except using pressure cooker. If pork is not frozen, brown all sides of pork in open, heated pot with lid off before adding liquid. Once browned (or if frozen), add 1 c liquid and liquid smoke to pot, cover with lid, cook on meat setting 2 hours if frozen or 1 hour if thawed. Do a natural release, check meat, and if it shreds easily, it is done. Larger cuts of meat might need additional time. Continue to make nachos as instructed.
