How Much Is Too Much?

HowmuchEverybody loves nachos. And everyone has their particular preference when it comes to nacho cheese. Some prefer their chips to have hot nacho cheese sauce poured on top, while others prefer to grate cheese directly on their chips and bake their nachos until the cheese has a nice crispy edge. But what about nacho toppings? There are definitely many ways to top nachos. The question was raised yesterday during lunch:

Can there ever be too much topped on a nacho?

The short answer is, “YES.”

But to understand why, there involves some explanation. First of all, let it be known that I lean a bit to the right when it comes to nachos. I like my chips and nacho cheese and that’s about it. If I had to top it with something, I may throw a few jalapeno peppers on there. That’s not to say I haven’t enjoyed nachos with other various toppings. A dollop or guacamole, a spoon full of sour cream, some chopped tomato, ground beef and bean chili, olives…the list goes on.

Honestly, all of those toppings are perfectly acceptable. The problem arises when you combine too many ingredients. At that point it was determined that the nachos will loose their integrity. In the end, it was agreed that two toppings is ideal, three toppings is pushing it, and if you put four or more toppings on your nacho you’re better off just making yourself a taco.
