Recipe: Pulled Pork Nachos

I had every intention of making tacos with this pulled pork recipe, but we just decided to throw everything on top of a bed of nachos.  Wasn't the worst idea we've ever had.

2 lbs. boneless pork tenderloin
12 oz jar of salsa (I used chipotle flavor for some smokiness)
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin
3 gloves minced garlic
splash of red hot

Place pork in slow cooker.  Combine all other ingredients in a large bowl and mix until blended.  Pour over pork.  Cook on LOW for 8 hours.  Shred with a fork and cook on WARM for another 15-20 minutes.

Top your nachos with the shredded pork and any or all of these (we chose all...):
-cheddar cheese

-diced chiles
-diced tomatoes
-black olives

-black bean salsa
-dollop of sour cream
