Frenchos? I’ll take the Zero

Frenchos If there’s any nacho out there that could be classified as doltish, this is it. Just as it was declared earlier that fondue is not nacho cheese, this little recipe is in no way, shape, or form nachos. Lest anyone think that by melting a dab o’ fromage on a tortilla chip automatically constitutes a nacho, they are sadly mistaken. Nachos should never have to be "plated" or "presented." Nachos are to be prepared by grabbing a handful of chips, thowing them into a bowl, and smothering it with molten hot nacho cheese. 

This recipe is a disgrace and an insult to all nacho lovers. Now excuse me while I slice a cube of Reblochon and pair it elegantly with a bold glass of 2003 Cotes du Rhone Villages Cairanne.

Magic Bullet for Nanosecond Nachos

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

MagicianCan’t sleep? Find yourself watching television at 1 o’clock in the morning? Then you’ve probably seen the commercial for Magic Bullet. This product claims that it’s the “personal, versatile, countertop magician that does any job in 10 seconds…or less.®” Strong claim. But can this “magician” make nachos? As a matter of fact, it can! The Magic Bullet comes with a plethora of attachments and also includes the “10 Second Recipe Book.” One recipe is called Nanosecond Nachos.

Obviously this recipe is only good if you actually own the Magic Bullet. But if you were thinking about picking one up and was on the fence, perhaps knowing that there’s a quick-and-easy 10 second recipe included with purchase will tip the scale.

Recipe: “In a Pinch” Nacho Cheese with Kraft Singles

From time to time I find myself in a situation where I crave the melted goodness that is nacho cheese, but my supplies are totally dry and the grocery store is closed or I’ve had one too many to drive.

When faced with utterly desperate moments like this, I often turn to the recipe below which we’ve dubbed, “In a Pinch Nacho Cheese with Kraft singles.”

This recipe is based on some simple ingredients found in most homes.

BTW, if you want to try a classic movie theater nacho cheese, try Rico’s nacho cheese (available at Amazon)

Ummm…You’re Joking, Right?

If there’s one thing I enjoy, it’s trying out new nacho recipes. And then I came across this four-step recipe on and nearly had a coronary.

Don’t get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their opinion especially when it comes to nachos. Everyone, that is, except Jeff. Apparently, Jeff is a bit retarded when it comes to the most basic ingredient of the nacho. I’m not talking about the tortilla chips (although after reading his recipe I wouldn’t have been surprised if he substituted chips for spinach salad). No, my nacho loving friends, I’m talking about the CHEESE! Dude…Jeff…here’s a little advice if you ever decide to write another nacho recipe:

You need nacho cheese.

Jeff’s nacho recipe is nothing more than chips. I feel bad for even pasting this recipe here on, but I believe I owe it to you, the reader, to see for yourself what a disgrace this recipe is and warn others to beware.

Jeff’s Nachos:
1. Buy nachos (brand of your choice).
2. Open bag of nachos using scissors in order to avoid lost nachos.
3. Empty contents of bag into a large bowl (this step is optional).
4. Consume nachos, but be careful to not eat the bag – this can lead to choking.

Nacho Average Recipe

ResolutionAverage Betty. Who is she? What is she famous for? Why do we care? The fact is…I don’t know. What I do know is that the self-proclaimed "Time Magazine Person of the Year" has recently posted a New Year’s Resolution video that promotes Nachos. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s plenty reason to scribble (type) a few lines of text.

Titled, That’s Nacho Resolution, the video gives a quick step-by-step recipe for Nachos. Personally, I found the video to be a bit on the annoying side…but what the hell do I know? Average Betty has a following and is even up for the "Yahoo! Best Internet Personality" Award.

What Will You Serve on Sunday? (part 2)

Walkingnacho_1 Now that’s it’s been established that Nacho Cheese Flavored chips are a disgrace to the nacho name, let me suggest an alternative for The Big Game. If you’ve already decided against the traditional chips-on-a-plate-with-nacho-cheese-poured-on-top recipe, and would rather serve your chips out of a bag, try this 3-step ditty on for size:

Shara’s Walkin’ Nacho:
Step 1: Cut a hole in a box
Step 2: Put your junk… (wait…wrong recipe)

Shara’s Walkin’ Nacho:
Step 1: Get a bag of tortilla chips
Step 2: pour hot nacho cheese into bag
Step 3: Shake bag and serve
