  • Microwave, Air-Fryer, Oven, or Toaster Oven. Any will work!


  • 2 handfuls Your favorite plain tortillia chip Any tortilla chip works, I persoanlly like restuarant style.
  • 1/2 cup Dairy-free cheddar cheese My favorite brand is Violife.
  • 3 tbsp Taco sauce Again, use your favorite. I like Ortega Original.
  • 3/4 cup Pulled pork We get the premade pulled pork from Costco or Del Real Slow-cooked Pork Carnitas. We have also used left-over pulled pork that we smoked. Do not use the saucy pulled pork.
  • 1/2 cup Avocado Make sure the avocado is ripe but not too ripe. It should have a medium firmness when you lightly touch it.
  • 1/2 cup Tomato chopped Any kind of tomato will do.


  • Warm up the pulled pork in the microwave. If you got store bought follow their instructions on the package. We like Del Real Slow-Cooked Pork Carnitas. At the current time, you can get this at Costco. Any NON-SAUCY pulled pork will work.

  • Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. You can use a microwave or air-fryer too. When I'm in a hurry I just do the microwave.
  • Depending on your cooking tool, spread your chips either on a paper plate (microwave only) or a cookie sheet with foil. I put parchment paper ontop of the foil...it's a bit healthier than on foil.
  • On top of the chips, sprinkle as much cheese as you like. For you dairy eaters, my family prefers the thick cut shredded cheese. For non-dairy I prefer Violife cheddar shreds over other brands.

  • Drizzle the taco sauce over the cheese.

  • Spread on as much pulled pork as you would like.
  • Bake or put in the microwave.
    For Baking, keep an eye on it. It's usually done in 5 minutes.
    For microwaving, start out with 45 seconds, then check it, and add another 30-40 seconds for cheese to melt.
  • Chop up the tomoto and avocado, then sprinkle on top!
  • Feel free to add any of your favorite toppings such as peppers, salsa, onions, cilantro. Enjoy!


The calories are a guesstimate. Based on a medium-size paper plate with 1/2 an avocado. Remember avocado may be high in calories, but it is super good for you! Don't be afraid of it.
