Nothing says “Nachos” like “Raw Fish?”

TilapiaI love nachos. And given that I’m Japanese, it’s no surprise that I also love sushi. But to find out that the winning recipe at this year’s Inland Northwest Healthy Nacho Recipe Contest was Ceviche Nachos, induced a bit of skeptisism. Granted, we’ve tried nacho cheese on gourment sausages, we’ve even tried nacho cheese on ice cream, but raw fish? No, really. Fish…that’s raw…with nacho cheese. That’s the winning recipe?


Ann Yanecek’s Ceviche Nachos won the top spot and will be featured on the Downriver Grill menu through Cinco de Mayo. Yanececk said her inspiration came from a fish taco recipe that husband loves.

If anyone lives in the Spokane, Washington area and cares to order up a plate, please take a picture and send us a review. We’d love to post it up on our site!

Fight Over Nachos

GirlfightWe’ve all been in a fight. “Hey, that’s my girl!” “I am NOT a wimp!” “I said I wanted my Appletini shaken!” But I don’t think a fight has ever broken out because of nachos. Until now.

Two 16-year-old girls were arrested for assault and battery on Friday, April 13 (how appropriate) at Revere High School after an argument over nachos turned ugly… The argument, that is… Not the girls. We don’t have any knowledge that the girls are anything below average looking.

Captain Dennis Collyer of the Revere Police Department said, “The girls were in the school’s cafeteria in a lunch line around 11:30 a.m., when they began to punch each other.” The Captain had no further details about the nacho fight.

Radio Alice II: The Wrath of Cheese

CheeeeseAfter a quick phone interview with Sarah & No Name last Thursday, the three of us were invited into the studio the following morning to do an on-air “private nacho tasting” of our Official Recipe with the morning crew.

That morning we met up and carpooled into the Alice @ 97.3 Station located in beautiful San Francisco. Already excited, on the way up we got even more amped when we heard them discussing our upcoming appearance. At that point, all we could think about was how terrible it would be if they ended up hating the recipe. When we arrived, we were greeted by Hooman and led into the Green Room to set up shop and begin cooking up our heavenly orange-colored gravy.

Below we’ve included two audio clips. The first is a little pre-appearance banter; the second, our on-air interview. Wondering how it all turned out? Well…you’ll have to listen. But to give you a clue, they’ve invited us back for their Cuatro de Mayo broadcast! Oh yeah…one last thing. Christy, the gal that called in with your…ummm…”joke?” Could you email us and explain? We’re all still trying to figure that one out!

Bottomless Nachos

AllyoucaneatNacho loving Dodger fans have reason to celebrate. Dodger Stadium has converted their right-field pavilion into “All-You-Can-Eat” seats. For $35 in advance or $40 on game day, fans will have access to as many hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn, soft drinks, and best of all NACHOS as they want.

But before you go out any buy a ticket to the next game hoping to stockpile some cheesy goodness into your napsack, be aware that there are limitations. The food booths open 90 minutes before games and close two hours after it begins. And if you try ordering 100 bowls of nachos you’ll be denied. But, “if a person goes up there and asks for four for his family, he won’t be told no,” said Camille Johnston, the Dodgers senior vice president of communications.

Hats off to the entire Dodger organization for providing such a great fan amenity. We salute you!

Nachos. Faster.

PaypassWhat can be more American than fast food? When we crave calories and cholesterol, the last thing we want standing in our way is having to wait more than 30 seconds to get it. Fortunately for all of us attention deficit snackers our there, MasterCard and Taco Bell have…

Oh look! A birdy just landed on my windowsill. Aaaaand, there it goes.

What was I talking about again?

Oh yeah. MasterCard and Taco Bell have made the process of getting our nachos even faster! They’re currently testing the MasterCard PayPass Touch & Go payment solution at approximately 100 Taco Bell stores. This means that the next time you want to order enough nachos to get your daily allowance of Vitamin C, you’ll be able to shave precious seconds off your total wait time. Priceless!

Nachos = Win for Florida?

Story suggestion by: Dan R. Email us a story.

UofThe NCAA Basketball Championship game between Florida and Ohio State is all but a distant memory. But four friends feel that their love of nachos helped propel Florida to their 84 to 75 win over Ohio State. Dan recalls the preparation leading up to the game:

“I supplied the BIG screen television – in HD of course; Scott supplied the beer and the hot dogs; Matt, the chips and a few gallons of Nikko’s Nacho Cheese Sauce; and Gary, he was in charge of the Nacho Cheese Fountain!”

At halftime, the guys grilled hot dogs and drizzled hot nacho cheese sauce on them directly from the fountain.

As Heard on KGO-AM 810 Radio

KgologoYesterday, ABC owned KGO-AM 810 Radio invited us to their Downtown San Jose, California office to participate in a quick interview with reporter Rob Artigo. Excited, the three of us hopped into a car and drove over wondering what to expect.

When we arrived, Rob greeted us, brought us into his studio, and flipped open the mic. We chatted, laughed, and had a great time for about 20 minutes. A few hours later, our segment was broadcast over the San Francisco Bay Area airwaves for all to listen to. We couldn’t be any happier with the way it turned out!

We were able to obtain a copy of the clip for your listening pleasure.

Nachos Now With 100% More Botulism!

Nachostogo_2We’d like to think we would try any nacho out there at least once for the sake of review. But after careful discussion, we decided against Mexican Express’ Nachos to Go product. Call us crazy, but we’re not really “down” with botulism. Simply put: Contaminated nachos just aren’t cool.

Last month the Nachos to Go product was linked to the botulism infection of a 26-year-old Melbourne man. The company immediately recalled the product with a best before date of April 19, and since then decided to withdraw all remaining batches from sale and stop production. Mexican Express managing director Ian Young defended his company by saying, “All of our systems are impeccable – we’ve done nothing wrong but that’s not the point. My kids actually ate this batch – that’s how good our records are.” He went on to express that his first priority was the health and welfare of consumers by stating, “We are putting the public first.”

Not Your Nacho Record Holder

Story suggestion by: Shara M. Email us a story.

WoolleyIf you recently searched for Sgt. Cam Woolley in Wikipedia, you may have been excited to learn that he presently holds the British Commonwealth title for most nachos eaten by a law enforcement officer. As a nacho lover, this would be an achievement worth praise. Unfortunately, Sgt. Woolley’s Wiki was the target of vandalism. In fact, when asked about this non-fact, Woolley replied, “I don’t even like nachos.”

Could’ve fooled me. No offense, but one look at Woolley would lead one to believe otherwise. Regardless of whether or not the good Sergeant (if he really IS a sergeant) is being truthful about his snacking habits, one must wonder: If he doesn’t hold that record, who does?
