Nachos Time: Nachos in the News - A convenient mouthful of short form nacho news, topped with the cheese of truth, jalapeno slices of journalism, beans of education, and other toppings of various questionable informative analogies. We bring you nacho news one chip at a time.
Welcome to Nachos Time, for when nacho related things happen in the news, but nothing in depth to write a real article about. Here’s what’s been going on with nachos recently:
ON TORTILLA CHIPS
February 24th was National Tortilla Chip Day. You can read more about it here, in preparation for INTERNATIONAL Tortilla Chip Day. Just kidding, unlike nachos which have both a National and International day, tortilla chips only seem to have a national day. What a shame.
ON PULLED PORK NACHO CRIME
Now I like nachos, but apparently not as much as the gentleman in this installment of Nacho Crime.
Imagine if you will: You are a chef who has just worked a long shift and want dinner, so you sit down at your own restaurant and order some pulled pork nachos. Trouble begins when they are brought out to you, but only on one plate rather than the two it should have been. You complain and send them back, but when you don’t have new ones in 15 minutes you cancel the order and take matters into your own hands. You walk into the kitchen, the very one where you were working not long ago, and start swearing at the current chef. “Have you ever seen the spec book?” You shout, throwing it in the chef’s face thinking, good zinger. But this isn’t enough, so you grab him by the throat shouting “Who do you think you are?” before punching him against the door of a fridge, fracturing his wrist. You probably don’t get your pulled pork nachos after all this.
Well stop imagining, because it happened.
And if you are interested in the nachos in question, here's their description. I know I'd surly beat someone up for some mature Cheddar and pot of guacamole.
Pulled Pork Nachos
- Chilli tortilla chips topped with melted mature Cheddar, nacho cheese sauce, tangy salsa, sticky BBQ pulled pork and fiery jalapeños. Served with pots of guacamole and soured cream
ON TACO BELL
Most likely in preparation for Taco Bell rolling out their breakfast menu, Fox News, undoubtedly fulfilling their “fair and balanced” requirement, has an interesting little piece on how Taco Bell dishes got their names. They’re like the worst origin stories of superheroes, if they were all Mexican and in being adapted for American audiences all they took were the names. Hopefully these will tide you over until the inevitable release of the Taco Bell Breakfastchos.
