In Spirit Of National Nacho Day, Here Are The 10 Nacho Commandments
Making a great plate of nachos is an art form. Some places have it down to a science; others have some work to do.
Here are the "10 Nacho Commandments" one must follow today, on National Nacho Day and every day:
I. Thou must evenly disperse cheese on every chip.
*Chip to cheese ratio is EVERYTHING.
II. Thou must use fresh tortilla chips that still have their crunch about them.
*Stale chips are the enemy
III. Thou must always provide enough sour cream.
*Don't make me ask for extra, it's bad for my self esteem.
IV. Thou must use multi colored chips
*Sure, they all taste the same. But I like my nachos to come out looking festive and fun! Don't you?
V. Thou must not be shy with the jalepenos
*Bring on the heartburn!
VI. Thou shalt not say you are out of Guacamole
*I am willing to pay the additional 2.50, please don't crush my dreams.
VII. Thou shall present nachos in a messy unreasonable pile
*It's weird when they come out looking all neat and organized.
VIII. Thou shall never use fake nacho cheese if real cheese is an option
*But at the movies or a sporting event? Bring on the fake cheese!
IX. Thou shall never take left over nachos home
*We all know that nachos aren't as good reheated. You're better off woofing them all down then and there.
X. Thou shall wash down nachos with a Corona and lime
Corona and Nachos are best friends. Let them be together in your belly in peace and harmony.
As you can see, I take my nacho eating very seriously. I hope you have a great National Nacho Day and enjoy your nachos responsibly.
