Try these Ground Pork Nachos made with white corn tortilla chips, ginger garlic ground pork, mozzarella cheese, and topped with a coleslaw mix and spicy mayonnaise.

With the holidays being right around the corner, I have no time to fuss over what to make for dinner. Meals have to be simple and quick but still flavorful and delicious. Recently I have been using ground pork as much as possible. I find that it is a nice change from having ground beef and chicken all the time as protein. I also love combining it with the flavors of ginger, garlic, and anything spicy. 

Today I’m sharing a recipe that combines all of those flavors and is ready in less than 30 minutes. Ground pork nachos are cheesy, flavorful, and topped with a creamy and spicy mayonnaise made with Duke’s Real Mayonnaise.

Why use Duke’s Real Mayonnaise?

I love using Duke’s Real Mayonnaise because it is a southern staple that has the ultimate bold and tangy flavor. It also contains no sugar and is a favorite among popular chefs and foodies. I enjoy using it in recipes beyond the typical sandwich because it can bring palate-thrilling flavor to many of your favorite dishes. Be sure to locate Duke’s Mayonnaise at your local grocery store by checking out the Where to Buy link on their website.

How to make this ground pork nacho recipe:

Cook the ground pork until it is brown, a little crispy, and most of the liquid has left the pan. Stir in the green onion and spicy sauce mixture. Stir until heated and combined, about 2 to 3 minutes and remove from the heat to assemble the nachos. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
