For those of you who may be health-conscious, let the record show that the ingredients are high in sodium. Val will not be held responsible if, after eating Val's Super Nachos, one of you has your car rammed by a deer trying to get in to find the salt lick.
Here's a breakdown of the caloric information:
10 restaurant style tortilla chips - 200 calories
1/2 an 8 oz bag of shredded lettuce - 15 calories
4 tbsp queso cheese dip (warmed) - 80 calories
1 shredded boneless skinless chicken breast - 150 calories
4 tbsp Senora Verde Salsa - 20 calories
1/2 a 2.5 oz can of sliced black olives - 50 calories
So the total is 515 calories in the whole plate of Val's Super Nachos. You can share them (yeah, right, like that's going to happen around Val's house) if you want, or make a meal of them.
Yum, yum! Gotta get you some!
It's basically a big salad, really. Just a pile of lettuce and a little pretend-cheese and proteiny chicken and spicy salsa and some black olives, with 10 chips instead of croutons. You could add sour cream if you like, or sprinkle on some shredded cheddar. But Val takes her Super Nachos straight.
You may not want to consume these in the presence of judging eyes. They are quite messy to eat. You might want a dropcloth for the floor, and a haircutter's cape for your body, especially if you are voluptuous and don't want bits of your meal resting on your built-in shelf.
Val's Super Nachos. They're real, and they're spectacular! Make sure to give Val credit.
