Before a big dinner with El Loco Dentista, it’s important to open up the stomach with some nachos.


We ordered up some nachos with house made beer cheese sauce, queso fresco, refried black beans and roasted salsa rojo. I forget what protein we added on, but it’s that shredded stuff at the top.

For $8 bar nachos these were pretty good! Any effort in making a homemade queso is appreciated. I also think these were ready about two minutes after we ordered them. A nice kick off to Super Bowl season, which is also one of the high holidays in nachodom.

Back to El Vez

During Winter Break, Mrs. Nachojawn and Little Miss Nachojawn joined me for lunch at El Vez. They were still off from work and school, but I had to earn the nacho money for 2017.

We started off with the Nacho Mamma. El Vez’s nachos have gone through a few iterations in recent years, and i would put the newest versions below the originals, but above last year’s version.


They’re advertisted as having black beans, smoked chile salsa, crema fresca, white cheddar, and monterey jack. Obviously they’re some chunky tomatoes on top too, as well as pickled onion. Not a bad effort, and the Starr Organization’s commitment to single layer tray nachos is evident.

What does Little Miss Nachojawn think?
