Posted on 03/10/2008 5:16:30 PM PDT by gondramB
I love the cheese nachos I get in Mexican restaurants - its white cheese kind of hot. You can bean or such but I just like the cheese. Its way better than cheddar or Velveeta or any kind other cheese I've tried to melt.
My neighborhood grocery store has been bought out by a Mexican chain catering to immigrants, legal and otherwise that have moved into Gwinnett county Georgia.
I decided to venture into El Mercado Pueblo even though I usually drive 5 times as far to go to Kroger. I figured where else would I get better Mexican cheese for Nachos. I figured I coulds also see how English friendly and how American-hostile they were.
It was staffed with lots of pretty girls that were friendly enough - I never found one who could understand that I was asking for Farmer's cheese that already had Jalapenos in it. But they helped me find Queso Picante that at least looked like what I wanted.
But I couldn't find Nachos. I asked three different people. They didn't seem to understand "nacho." Thank goodness they didn't seem upset or insulted - a good thing because I got caught noticing how low a 20-something girls jeans were riding in back. But they seemed to regard that as a sign of good taste on my part.
So - does anybody know how to say "Nacho" in Mexican. I still want my cheese nachos.
BTW, I’d also be happy to get a good recipe for Mexican cheese nachos, whether I ever find out how to say it Mexican or not.
I wish I had an answer. Queso de patatas fritas?
The headline made me LOL.
Say “Que es puta?” ...
Part of the problem you are facing is that Nachos is actually an American food, not a Mexican one. They are served in Mexican restaurants here because it’s expected. Kinda like Chop Suey... not Chinese, but American.
A mother sent her son to the next aisle to get some nacho cheese. He came back knowing he had accomplished his mission because when he grabbed it from someone else’s basket, the man yelled, “Hey! That’s nacho cheese”.
Lol. Well considering that “nachos” is a word that is of Mexican/spanish in origin I would say you would say it...
Did say there were ladies working there.
“Cliente’ Numero 9 “
Only American women consider it sexist-bigoted and grounds for a lawsuit.
European women take it as a flattering compliment.
One of the FEW things I regard Euros as superior to us - flirting.
Chips con queso?
Buy yourself some Pepper Jack cheese, and chunk it up and melt it with a little milk in a pan on the stove, or in your micro...but stir it the entire time it’s melting!
(Which means STOPPING the micro ever minute or so to stir...I don’t recommend getting INTO the microwave oven.)
Also buy yourself some “Restaurant Style” chips in white corn, yellow corn or blue corn and knock yourself out. :)
And your Fiesta (that means “party” in Spanish, not ‘Mexican’) starts...what time?
I’ll bring the cervesa (which is “beer” in Spanish, not ‘Mexican’) and the frijoles (which are “beans” in Spanish, not ‘’Mexican.’)
Ole! :) (Which means “Uh-RAH” in Marine-Speak.)
Wow. I’m a chick, but I must say that THOSE are some AMAZING nachos!
You realize this thread is going nowhere but down, right? ;)
Michael: Banana daiquiri.
Usted tiene un hermoso detrás
On the contrary, this thread is looking “up”...
What was the thing about Nachos? “Betcha can’t eat just one”?
