Here are some of my other sheet pan meals worth trying
Nachos were created in Northern Mexico and the original recipe contained tortilla chips, melted cheese, and sliced jalapenos. Today, there are tons of different variations: meats, beans, veggies, sauces, etc.
Hawai’i is the melting pot of the world and what better way to embody that than to fuse my native Hawaiian foods with Mexican. And viola. . . kalua pig nachos.
What’s in sheet pan kalua pig nachos?
- Tortilla chips
- Shredded cheese
- Kalua pig (duh)
- Lomi salmon
- Sour cream
- Green onion
I have a simple kalua pig recipe that is made in the Instant Pot. You could also make this recipe in the Crock Pot. If you don’t have time for that, swing by your local grocery store and pick up a container usually found in the frozen meat section. For my mainland friends, I would recommend making your own batch. If all else fails you can order online from sites like orderhawaiianfood.com (not paid/sponsored/an ad). I have never ordered from this site, but thought I’d share some options.
Swap out the diced tomatoes found in regular nachos for lomi salmon and continue the Hawaiian-Mexican fusion. If you don’t have lomi salmon, you can always stick with diced tomatoes.

How to store sheet pan kalua pig nachos?
It’s best to eat this dish fresh. You could possibly store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge, then bake to reheat as needed, however it’s not the same as eating it fresh. I would not recommend freezing this dish.
