So you’ve spent some time making our delicious Smoky Mexican Pulled Pork recipe and enjoyed popping it in a bread roll with coleslaw. However, you fancy doing something a little different with all that lovely leftover pulled pork! We’ve put together a few ideas for you to try so that getting bored of pulled pork will never ever happen.

1. Pulled Pork Banh Mi

Leftover Pulled Pork Recipes

Bánh Mì Sandwiches originate from French colonialism in Vietnam, bringing together French-style bread with classic Vietnamese ingredients and flavours. We thought we’d throw a little Mexican into the mix as well, and we’re very happy with the Results. Adding a few twists to the classic Banh Mi, we used leftover pulled pork made with our Smoked Chipotle Paste and topped the whole thing with a delicious little sauce made with our Smoked Chipotle Mayo.

Stuffed Jalapenos are a great little idea for a starter or party food. We thought this would be a great way to use up any leftovers you might have from our Smoky Mexican Pulled Pork recipe…how right we were! Give this delicious little idea a go and enjoy the good life. We replaced the usual jalapeños with sweet mini-peppers with plenty of heat coming from our Smoked Chipotle Paste.
