Carolina Pulled Pork Cups

I thought it would be nice to have a little snack tonight and use up a few things I already had on hand.  So I used the left over Pulled Pork from dinner this past week.  So I grabbed some corn chip “dipper cups” and set off on a quick and easy appetizer.  My Carolina Pulled Pork Cups were born.  I’ve made pulled pork pizza before and to be honest that is the direction I was originally going with tonight snack.  But then I saw the corn chips and decided I’d like a bit of a crunch that they would add.  So y’all should do the same as I have.  Use up some of your leftovers and make new snacks and appetizers out of them.  You’ll find that your saving a lot of food that you might throw out because you have only a small amount left of something.  You don’t need much to make snacks and you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with.

Tonight’s treat had a great saltiness from the corn chips, sweetness and tanginess from the home made Carolina BBQ sauce and creaminess from the bit of shredded cheddar cheese I topped them with.  Unfortunately I didn’t have any fresh chives so I had to resort to dried.  Y’all give these a try the next time you have left over pulled pork.  You can also use left over taco meat, chicken or any other protein you have just a bit of left over.


  • 1/2 cup shredded pork
  • 1/2 cup Carolina BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 small shallot diced small

  • 24 corn chip dipper cups
  1. Heat the pork so it doesn’t take as long to bake them.
  2. Spread the corn chip cups out on a baking sheet and fill with pork and about 1 teaspoon BBQ sauce.
