Homemade Queso Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups medium cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Seasoned Black Beans

  • 1 14 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup white onion minced
  • 1 4 oz can green chiles diced
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock


  • Make the seasoned beans. In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the onions to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onions start to turn translucent. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Stir in the green chiles, beans, and chicken stock. Place a lid on the pan, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 10-15 minutes while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  • Make the queso sauce. In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour until a thick paste forms. Whisk in the 2 cups of milk and bring the mixture to a boil. It should thicken and coat the back of a spoon. Turn the heat off and whisk the cheese in batches until it all melts. Season with the chili powder and cayenne pepper. Season with salt, to taste.
  • Heat the toppings. Heat the beans and the leftover pulled pork in saucepans and keep warm until just before assembling your nachos.
  • Assemble! Pour the chips out on your serving platter. Drizzle all over the chips with the hot queso sauce. Top immediately with the beans, pulled pork, and drizzle with BBQ sauce.
  • Enjoy! Serve immediately or top with additional nacho toppings, as desired.
