Lunchtime Poll: Not ‘cho Nacho

Let’s talk about something very important: nachos.

I’m always experimenting to create the perfect nacho. My current favorite combo is:

  • On the Border brand chips. They are the perfect heftiness to support toppings but still thin enough to not outshine the other flavors. Let’s be real; the chip is just a crunchy vehicle to deliver the toppings into your face.
  • Shredded pork or chicken.
  • Pepper jack cheese. It melts so nice.
  • Refried black beans.
  • Pico de gallo.
  • Guacamole.
  • Queso fresco.
  • Fresh jalapeno.
  • All the cilantro. (I realize that cilantro is controversial. If you don’t like cilantro, just send it my way.)

So, Persephoneers, how would you build your ideal plate of nachos?

  1. ground beef or chicken (but I don’t want to be the one who has to cut up the chicken because raw chicken is gross)

    green onions
    black olives
    jalepeños, but doesn’t need to be a ton
    sour cream
    black beans
    fresh tomatoes

    Any sort of cheese is fine. The saucy queso stuff, pepperjack, whatever.
