Super Nacho Higante

These nachos are quick and dirty and the subject of a long-running nacho-eating contest at Worship Surf Bar, located in Atlantic City, N.J. The contestant must eat the entire nacho platter during any live televised NFL game in Surf Bar from the end of second quarter until the beginning of third quarter. The contestant may not have any help eating the platter. If the contestant finishes the entire platter, they win free tickets to the House of Blues show of their choice and the nachos are free. If the contestant fails to complete the nachos within the stated time period, they must pay the $30 for the nachos.

Nacho Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Nacho Cooking Tip

When preparing appetizers try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.

Nacho Wine Pairing

Malbec, syrah/shiraz, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, zinfandel, petite sirah, primitivo, or carménère with meat- and bean-based dishes; viognier or grüner veltliner with seafood dishes.
