We’ve all been there, stocking up on 8 bags of Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi only to stare into your freezer wondering what to do with it. Sure, you could pair it with your basic pasta sauces. But why not live a little? And using cauliflower gnocchi as the base for BBQ pulled pork nachos is my definition of living!

The recipe calls for air frying the cauliflower gnocchi, but an oven will get the job done all the same. You’ll also need a prepared BBQ pulled pork. I’ve linked to my favorite recipe, but you could use any recipe or even pulled pork from your favorite grocery store/restaurant. 

If you steer clear of red meat, I have a great Instant Pot pulled BBQ chicken recipe as an alternative. And if you’re in a pinch, rotisserie chicken with a little extra BBQ sauce will get the job done. 

Oh, and if you still have 6 bags of gnocchi to use, try the pizza cauliflower gnocchi next.
