Barbecue leftovers can be transformed into a tasty treat with minimal effort. In this blog post, we'll explore a simple and delicious way to use your leftover smoked beef rib by turning it into mouth watering nachos. This recipe is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Let's get started!


  • corn chips
  • Left Over pulled beef ribs
  • Cheese
  • Salsa
  • sour cream
  • guacamole

The Leftover Beef Rib:

After smoking the beef rib to perfection, we had some leftovers. To keep it fresh, we stored the pulled beef rib in a vacuum seal bag and placed it in the freezer for later use.

Preparing the Beef Rib:

To bring back the flavours and tenderness of the smoked beef rib, we thawed it and reheated it using two methods. The first method is simmering it in a pot of water for about 30 minutes. If you're short on time, you can also use the microwave to heat it quickly. Both methods work well to restore the smoky goodness of the meat.

Assembling the Nachos:

Now it's time to assemble our nachos. Grab some corn chips, salsa, pulled beef ribs, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. Arrange the corn chips on a baking sheet, and then layer them with the pulled beef, salsa, and cheese. Repeat this process for a tasty stack of nachos.

Baking the Nachos:

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Celsius. Place the assembled nachos in the preheated oven and let them bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese melts and turns golden brown. This step will infuse all the flavours together and give the nachos a deliciously crispy texture.

The Finishing Touch:

Once the nachos are out of the oven, it's time to add the final touches. Top them with dollops of sour cream and guacamole. These creamy additions will balance the smoky flavours and add a refreshing kick to the nachos.


With just a few simple steps, your barbecue leftovers can be transformed into a mouthwatering dish of beef rib nachos. It's a fantastic way to repurpose your smoked beef rib and enjoy a delightful snack or meal. So, the next time you have leftovers from a barbecue, give this easy recipe a try. Get the family involved, and enjoy the delicious flavours that come from reinventing your leftovers. Happy snacking!
