Working the System

LoopholeI am fortunate enough to work at a company that provides nachos on a weekly basis in our cafeteria. The nachos are reasonably priced…but I’ve discovered a hole in the system to get FREE nacho cheese.

In the cafe, nacho’s cost $3.00 for a small bowl while a small basket of french fries cost $1.50. We all know that the cheese is were the money is. However, if I take my $1.50 french fries over to the nacho bar, smother it in steaming hot cheese, and walk it over the register, I am still only charged $1.50 for my fries! We’re talking free nacho cheese fries! Last week, I even topped it off with some chili and still paid the same price.

Chili cheese fries for the price of regular fries?

Yes please!

Nacho Cheese on Gourmet Sausages

Sausage
It’s not a new thing to try nacho cheese on hot dogs.  Cheese on hot dogs has been used for many years, though it usually takes a more solid, grated form.

Recently I tried a very basic nacho cheese (Frito’s version) with a gourmet sausage cooked on a bbq from a local meat store that specializes in sausages.  The sausage I chose was a spicy linguisa topped with nacho cheese in between a bun that resembled a sliced portion of french bread.

The result was an amazing mix of cheese and sausage, delicious down to the last bite!  Using nacho cheese on sausages is highly recommended.  I’m looking forward to trying this again and adding even more things like diced tomatoes and onions.
