Nacho Resolutions for 2010
Another year is gone and a new one is upon us, which means it’s time to hunker down and make a few resolutions. Sure, you could be boring about it and say you’re going to lose weight and save money and blah blah blah. You’re going to quit that crap in a month anyway so why not make some resolutions that last. So let’s resolve to eat right in 2010, and by eat right I mean eat nachos right. Now is a great time to consider your nacho habits and ways to make them better. Lucky for you we have some great ideas of how to do that:
Lose the Lettuce
You know we’ve discussed before, but lettuce is no more than flavorless filler with no flavorful or nutritional value whatsover. Restaurants throw it on nachos so you think you’re getting more for the buck. In 2010, tell them to shove it. Lettuce is for Taco Salad.
Embrace the Lime
Lime is the key to all things citrously delicious. We recently even added it into applesauce for the now infamous Latkchos, and te result was pure delight. Need to nacho-fy any dish? Lime will always be the answer.
Make Guac, Not War
If only we had a little more Guac in our lives, perhaps we would have less trouble in the world. This expensive dip can be made at home on the cheap. We really like it with a little habanero, but you can make it however you like. Chunky, smooth, wet, dry, spice, you can go any direction with nature’s butter. If you must buy it, our tip is to go with one without the word dip and 8 ingredients or less.
Lose the Reds
We had a thrilling expose on the trouble with red tortilla chips. In 2010, resolve to stay away from the chip with the made up color. Sure, they may look pretty and maybe you need them for a patriotic platter come July 4th, but they’re artificial. So think on that.
Maybe it’s just the food blogger in us, but we can’t even think of touching a plate of ‘chos before snapping a pic. Take this to heart: when a plate you order or make is astoundingly gorgeous, make sure you capture it in its glory so you can remember it forever. You’ve got a cameraphone, no? Here’s an idea, send us those pics and tell us about your nacho experience. We’re always on the lookout for new and interesting ‘chos.
Vacation for ‘Chos
Okay, maybe you don’t need to go on vacation just for nachos, but say you’re in a new place and nachos are on offer, strap in and eat up. They are different everywhere, so tap into some local flavor.
Be careful with the Overzealous
If a nacho sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Recently, we tried to eat the myth of a Buffalo Chicken Nacho, it was gross. Until we, the Nacho Inventists, come up with a recipe, stay away from those along with Oreo Nachos, Cheesecake Nachos, and definitely Prime Rib Nachos. We’ll let you know when we have them ready.
What are you resolving to do to improve your nacho situation?
