Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice red onion. Have, peel, and dice half the yellow onion (save remaining for another use). Thinly slice jalapeño into rounds, removing ribs and seeds for less heat. Pick cilantro leaves from stems; roughly chop leaves.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine red onion, half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest in the next step), ½ tsp sugar, 1 TBSP water, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Microwave for 90 seconds. Set aside to pickle, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add yellow onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-6 minutes. Add paprika, half the Steak Spice (use the rest as you like), and another drizzle of oil. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Tear pulled pork* into smaller pieces if necessary. Add to pan along with two packets BBQ sauce, remaining vinegar, and ½ cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pork is warmed through and sauce is reduced and thickened, 4-5 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Spread blue corn tortilla chips out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle three packets Mexican cheese over top. Top with pulled pork mixture and remaining cheese. Bake on top rack until cheese melts, 3-5 minutes.
While nachos bake, place sour cream in a small bowl. Add water 1 teaspoon at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
In a separate small bowl, combine Frank’s hot sauce with remaining BBQ sauce.
Once cheese is melted, remove nachos from oven. Sprinkle with shredded carrots, jalapeño, and pickled red onion (draining first) to taste. Drizzle with crema and spicy BBQ sauce. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
Pulled Pork is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 160°.
