You have to admit; Mexican people sure do know what they are doing when it comes to food. The spices they use, the ingredients that they combine make for a complete journey for the senses. In essence Mexican food is not unhealthy. It is made up of beans, fresh vegetables, and spices to add natural flavor. But when people order a plate of nachos, they are not necessarily getting an authentic Mexican dish. They are not getting a plate of food that was made by a grandmother out of the goodness of her heart. They are getting an American version of the dish.
This means that the tortilla chips are the furthest thing from corn that one can get. Each little bite contains a fair amount of carbohydrates and sugars. Then we look at the cheese. This is American cheese that is not made from free-range milk. It is processed. It is saturated and it is basically plastic. As if the huge amount of cheese that is present weren’t enough, a whole dollop of sour cream is then thrown over the chips. The only two things that could be considered healthy, depending on how they are made, is the salsa and guacamole. When it comes down to numbers, a plate of nachos could land up coming with 750 calories and 38 grams of fat.
