Nachos. You love them. Don't lie. - Thu, 06/30/05 4:16 AM

Recently I rediscovered (maybe the right phrase is "gave into") nachos. I'm not talkin' home-broiled three-cheese-blue-organic-corn-chip-plated "Nachos", but the carnival and quickie-mart convolution of extra-salty fake Tostitos with hand-pumped "cheez" sauce. It tastes of Jurassic Park at the outdoor, Tilt-a-Whirl rides after your first joint, skating backwards at the rink, curling irons.

Nachos. The new hot dog.

Sorry Jessie, But in this case Nachos are the exception to LAYS claim, "Bet you can't eat just one"!
I have tried a few times, and I am afraid that if I were in the Donner party, I would be sharing the Nachos with everyone else.

Coincidentally, this article, entitled Nacho Nirvana, appears in the St Paul Pioneer Press today (06/30/05)

The 7-11 ones are the best after a long night of beveraging. Especially with both chili and cheese on them. I think I had them sober once too and they werre still very tasty.

Nope--don't like them. Give me some stale chips, Colby cheese and a microwave, and they're much better, even without additional toppings.

This reminds me of the late 60's when my grandparents would get what they called "government cheese". It came off a truck that would pass through town and it got handed out to those that qualified (poor) for it. It was packaged in a 5 lb brick and foil wrapped, but wasn't like Velveeta. It made the best nachos I've ever eaten. And yes, I like the oozy cheese sauce kind, also

I love 'em at football games and sometimes at movies as a meal substitute. I come back from the snack bar with 'em studded with jalapeno slices to keep my wife and kids out of them.

OK I admit to giving in occasionally but nacho's like icecream are just not a pretty site when eatin by a guy with a full beard! regardless of a handful of napkins a nearby washroom is a must! I make a home style nacho dip... One pound groundmeat browned off with 3 tps A1, healthy shot of worceshire, one medium chopped onion, heaping tablespoon chopped garlic then drained and returned to pan, 2 cans of hot rotelle (canned chopped tomatoes, onions, peppers) warm through, half block of cream cheese, one tub processed nacho cheese with peppers, couple big handfuls shredded cheddar

Sorry, I think these can be good or bad. I used to like them but, as too much else, with the passage of time they seem to be using more fake stuff and bargain basement ingredients and I don't like 'em at too many places now. It's not that I'm against the basic concept of dumping "cheese sauce" over chips, and maybe throwing on a handful of chopped jalapenos, but the cheese sauce has to taste decent and the chips have to be edible on their own. That's too often not the case lately.

I'm no real fan of them, but if the chips are not overly salty, and served with Old El Paso Jalapeno Chez Goop I'll induldge.

We got government cheese for a while I was a kid. That and Velveeta have their place (I prefer jack cheese for nachos), but that stuff they pour out of a can and heat up at a ball game is truly gross. The worst part, though, is those godawful chips.

At home for a quick snack I just throw some refried beans, salsa, and shredded mozz or jack on some Trader Joe's chips and toast in the toaster oven. A little guac on the side is great but of course you don't want to heat it up.

This is going to be heresy, but my favorite "nacho" type snack is either the spinach or artichoke based dip surrounded by tortilla chips that you seem to be able to find all over the place nowadays. Sorry to all the nacho and salsa purists out there!

Hmmm. At first I thought you said guiac. That's the stuff used to detect blood in st__l (warning: gratuitous medical reference!). I thought that's odd. But then my eyesight cleared up . . . .

if you can afford to be sinful, try nachos 'n' icecream...chocolate or vanilla! yummyy!!
i'm not sure if anyone tried this....deep-fry a piece of 6" flour tortilla on a deep-scoop ladle so that the tortilla takes the shape of a bowl. once tortilla bowl is cooled, put in two scoops of chocolate or vanilla icecream...voila....dessert!
i liked the combination; the tortilla which is slightly salted and sweet icecream...really blends! try it out and pray tell if this is a cool recipe

I like Velveeta. Must be memories from my youth. Grilled cheese made with Velveeta. Yum.

Makes great nachos. Velveeta plus a can of Rotel and some jalapenos. Heat & serve.

I am a grown woman.

I generally stick to a lowcarb diet.

I am physically incapable of passing up nachos. Good, bad or mediocre.

Yep, I admit it. I love nachos with the gloppy cheez food stuff and smothered in sliced black olives. As long as I'm earning my Our Fathers and Hail Marys here, I'd like to confess a deep hankerin for Jack in the Box tacos.

There. I did it.

I like them every now and then, but only the ones I make at
home with the blue chips, melted sharp cheddar, jalapeno slices, and cold fresh garlic salsa. Those "things" you get at the drive-in or the 7-11 with the mystery yellow sauce? NO!

Me too enginecapt. I think I'm going to die 5 years earlier because I can't break myself of the habit of getting 4 or 6 'Jack-In-The-Box' tacos whenever I drive by.

My vote is definitely for the homemade variety. When I'm really crazed, I make chips from good corn tortillas, top with colby/jack and strips of roasted poblanos or barker chiles and broil, then have with some cold sour cream on the side. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

Maybe I'm twisted but I love nachos just about any way I can find them. When walmarts first opened up, they had snack bars that carried food such as popcorn, nachos with that orange hand pumped cheese etc, and anytime I went to walmart I always stopped at the snack bar for some of those nachos. Its rare nowadays to find a walmart (at least in So Cal) that has a honest to goodness snack bar instead of a Mcdonalds outlet but whenever I do, yep I get the nachos :)

Ah, nachos. I haven't had them in a long time. I remember my elementary school served the 'really salty' tortilla chips and the 'goopy' cheese - everyone loved them. I still love them.

My parents, however, always bought the no fat, no salt, bland, tasteless Tostitos brand nacho chips (read: cardboard) and had it with equally bland Tostitos brand salsa or the Tostitos 'cheese' sauce. Lovely image, eh? At least the salsa and/or cheese kind of overpowered the blandness of the chips...but I would have easily gone for the nachos of my elementary school days. At least those nacho chips had some TASTE, even if the taste was lots of salt!

In high school we would make trays of Seafood Nachos for parties.

They don't last long.

Use the imitation crabmeat, scallions, colby jack, jalapenos, black olives - with sides of salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

Eat 'em fast - or the chips get soggy...

I dunno, all that crap (beef, beans, jalapenos, onions, olives, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, tomato, etc.) thrown on top of a bed of tortillas has lost it's effect on me.

except on Superbowl Sunday. But, it's also the only day of the year that I'll even consider a Bud Light.

I'll eat everyone dang one I can get my hands on. Always disappointed when I order one at a restaurant. The only thing I don't like is when they
just use regular chili instead of some Mexican/Tex Mex spiced meat, and
I hate it when the chips get soggy. I make my own and eat em regularly.
One of my favorite foods.

I think nachos may be a (formerly?) regional/generational thing. In the Northeast, I never heard of "Nacho" except as an adjective for Doritos until I was old enough to order a beer at the then urban-chic TGI Fridays. Within a year I was visiting friends in Denver and they had Nachos everywhere and indeed, 7-Eleven nachos were required after a night of drinking.

Twenty-odd years later nachos seem to be everywhere in the U.S. I like good ones. But my wife who went to high school in Arizona can't pass up chips with salsa in any form (but Cheez-Whiz, she can).

Was over on a friend's boat this weekend and all he had to drink was a Coors Light. Wish he'd had some beer instead!

I actually like imitation crab. I don't make imitation crab in lieu of real crab...Lord knows in the mid-atlantic region there's probably a law making it a capital crime to do so. It's clearly not a substitute, but I've created some dishes with imitation crab that have been well received. And, with real crab, the dish would be way too expensive to make, and the crab flavor would be too subtle to overcome all the other flavors involved in the dish. When I use real crab, I like to keep other ingredients down to a minimum, so as not to spoil its flavor.

Velveeta is a product that I use with only one recipe. And that recipe is a dip I like to call "$h!t." It gets it's name from 2 places, the first is because of its remarkable visual resemblance to the substance of the same name. It's made with a 16 oz. can of condensed black bean soup, mixed with 16 oz jar of hot salsa and 16 oz chunk of velveeta. (like a true pound cake, where all the ingredients are one pound) Put it all in a bowl and microwave it until the cheese is melted and it's a little soupy (nice and warm). Which leads me to the 2nd reason I call this dip "$h!t," which comes from the numerous responses to those who have sampled the dip who say, "this '$h!t' is good!" So, I have found one good use for velveeta.

Maybe the imitation crab you are able to bay is better than the stuff you get here in Kansas....it has the texture of rubber and tastes worse.

well,(lol) that could be true, but it's tough to tell. I usually make the dip for a party, which means there are (buffallo) wings, homemade pizza, salsas, veggie platters, mexican dips, and other assorted digestive lubricants, so it's tough to say whether that one dip is totally to blame for that, but, sure, I'll buy it. 3 reasons are always better than 2!

Maybe you should get a thesaurus and learn some new adjectives, and lay off the curse words, please. I dont like getting grossed out while reading about food, thank you.

It would now appear someone is enjoying posting references to excrement (in it's various forms and/or as it is known in various cultures) in threads otherwise about food at every possible opportunity.

Not sure about the rest of you, but I find the pattern more than a bit unsettling, perhaps even nauseating.

it's tongue in cheek. I think that comes out crystal clear in the post. Someone else was able to see that, so it couldn't have been unobvious. I've mentioned the dip two times, so there's no pattern Mr. Nauseated. I also posted the recipe so you can try it and see if you like it. It's quick, easy, and enjoyed by many. Call it what you want. Our name is a running joke from long ago. so go lay an egg and throw a flame at some one else. You're way off base. You too rossy. If you have a problem, how about emailing me instead of trying to throw fire in an open forum. If either of you were nice, and you emailed me privately, I might have dealt with you differently and modified it for your weak stomachs. and avoided any confrontation in the forum.
Telling someone to learn new adjectives and get a thesaurus? Is that for real. I think it's pretty rude to attack someone openly without provocation. Especially after you recently just went to throws with someone else and had threatened to quit this site. I would've thought you'd try to be more discreet and not so quick to throw caution in the wind. Take a look inward and pull out your thesaurus and look up the word demimonde.

It wasnt you that I was referring to, Scorereader.
I have no issue with your post here.
It is with another poster, and it is on more than this post/topic.
I am sorry that you thought it was you, and I should not have used your quote. Just the other one listed.
And, actually, your $hit Dip sounds good!
If I may use "your" recipe name.

And I'll bet that someone is doing it because you react like the church lady every time it's done. Stop stalking that person and it will die down. Your dramatic overreaction to the use of the word "vomit" is many times more sickening than seeing it used in posts about food, IMHO. Take a chill pill Mr. Jackson. I haven't encountered anyone this prissy about these kind of innocuous words in years.

Back to personal tastes and nachos...the only thing that tends to really bother me about them is the fact that the melted cheese quickly becomes a crusty, disgusting glob as the dish inevitably cools off.

I tasted a really great nacho style dip one time, that essentially was a layered nacho..with refried beans, guacamole, salsa, and a sour cream/cream cheese combination. It completely did away with that congealed melted cheese issue...does anyone have that recipe?

If you are going to attack TJ, then attack me also, as I find it unacceptable in roadfood talk also.
There is no need to speak of food as vomit, excrement, dreck or any other foul adjective.
I may not have the best command of the english language, and may not use spell check, but I surely dont like seeing this kind of talk on many posts.
I probably will get chastised for this.

TJ, Rossy:
my mistake. I'm sorry.
Maybe, to avoid confusion, this should be handled through the admins and emails.

Yes, I rediscovered this food too--at the movie theater. I took my son and his best friend to the movies. This friend didn't want popcorn. Instead he asked for nachos, something I would never had bought for me or my own kids. I ended up eating all of the leftovers, practically licking the dish and was left craving for more. Thank goodness it was in the dark.

I've never been a big fan of nachos, per se. Something about that fake-tasting cheese. Reminds me of Taco Hell, somehow.

However, I used to love making chili con queso from scratch and dipping in with tortilla chips. The proper triangular variety. I think we used a blend of cheddar and pepper jack, but I could be wrong. I know we never ever used Velveeta. My mother used to make open-faced toasted cheese sandwiches for us, which were fine with American, but I could never abide the texture of Velveeta. However, my brother loved it. To each his own, I suppose.

Now that hubby is diabetic, we're on a low-carb diet. One of my low-carb recipe books actually suggests taking La Tortilla Factory L-C tortillas and making your own chips out of them. Sounds like a lot of work to me. lol

Velveeta, Ro-Tel tomatoes and Fritos Scoops = Mandalay Nachos.

If loving Velveeta is a crime, let me be guilty ...

I like nachos but think it is a crime what restaurants charge for something so stupidly simple to make.

I usually prefer dipping tortilla chips in chili with sour cream, onions and cheese on top like some other posters mentioned.

The chips dipped in that neon cheese goo are not nachos and velveeta is positively revolting in my opinion but to each one's own.

Never had one. It looks like an Antipasto served on large Fritos, and I don't care for Fritos. Chow Jim

An ex-boyfriend of mine worked at 7-11. Even though it was not store policy, he would add some of the juice from the pickled jalapenos to the cheese mix. It was very tasty. Ah, the good old days.

HotDog, I use jalapeno juice for all kinds of stuff. It may well make anything a bit better? I even do soy & J juice to soak steaks in before cooking. Now my inlaws do the same. Just mix it till it tasts good to sip on. Hmmm, a litle vadka might make a new drink?

Any meat I use for nachos gets it too. My velveta dip also gets some.

PapaJoe8: Your idea for the steak marinade is brilliant! Thanks. I will definitely try that. My mouth is watering already.
