Siobhan Wallace is my homegirl. As half of Blondie and Brownie and one of my many cool co-workers at Robicelli’s, she is all over the NYC food scene. So when she was writing a piece for CBS New York on the best nachos in the city, I just had to give my two cents.

Nachos in the Media: Crappy Looking ‘Chos on Top Chef

I don’t watch Top Chef. I find the drama to be completely fake and a waste of valuable foodie TV time. (If you want to see the current gold standard of food competition shows, check out “Chopped” on Food Network, and yes I’m excited for “Chopped All Stars” starting this weekend.)

‘Chommercials: Pass the Old El Paso

You know what they say…”Pass the Old El Paso”. Wait, no one says that? I guess this commercial was a complete fail for the company then. The jingle has been stuck in my head ever since I heard it for the first time one day ago.

Nachos in the Media: Colbert iPads Salsa

I’m not sure what they’re putting in the water over at the Comedy Central headquarters, but I bet it tastes something like Cholula, because their on-air personalities are displaying symptoms of a sever nacho dependency.
