  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure that the cheese melts evenly over the pork rinds.
  2. Next, spread your pork rinds on a baking sheet. Be sure to spread them out evenly so each pork rind gets a good amount of toppings.
  3. Then, sprinkle your shredded cheddar cheese over the pork rinds. The amount of cheese you use will depend on your preference, but a good rule of thumb is to make sure each pork rind has a nice layer of cheese.
  4. Now, add your sliced jalapenos on top of the cheese. If you're not a fan of spice, you can leave these out.
  5. Bake your nachos in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. You'll know they're done when the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Finally, remove your nachos from the oven and top them with sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and green onions. These toppings add a fresh contrast to the savory pork rinds and melted cheese.
