Nacho Man


I believe I once mentioned in passing that one of the great things that I've gotten out of my friendship with Ambrosia is an appreciation of El Azteca nachos. The first time that we got them together, we'd each get our own. Back then, it rang up as $6 after tax. So that seemed like a pretty good deal for a meal.

But it didn't take us too long to figure out that neither of us could ever finish the nachos (I think that actually maybe she did once, which is incredible and means that she should enter herself into eating contests). So we started just sharing them. So suddenly, it was $3 for a meal. Even better.

Since marrying Murray, I've converted him, too. Today we met for a nacho lunch at El Azteca. Here's our meal. And no, between the two of us, we can't finish it.

(something funky happened with that picture...)

uggh... I am a glutton for gluttony. They are REALLY good though.

yum! I discovered El Azteca nachos my freshman year at BYU. I was working at the Games Center, and everytime I worked nights with one coworker he would make me call El Azteca to place the order (because he was afraid of the phone or something, never quite figured that one out) then he'd go pick them up and bring them back for our indulgence. They were so, so, good!

Those look awesome! And now you have given me another restaurant to eat at in Utah. We've got a long list and I'm afraid we're not going to make it to all of them.

I dunno, I think I can take 'em. And even if I can't, I'd sure love a shot at it!

You're making me hungry.

I am coming down to Provo tomorrow, and now I must schedule a stop at el Azteca. I have always loved their tacos, but have never had nachos there before. And I am experiencing a nacho renaissance, so I feel I must have them.

Yum!

HOLY CRAP those look FAN-tastic! The watermelon I just ate kind of came up a little bit in my mouth. HAHA.

Ah, man. Now I'm hungry. And there is not even an El Azteca in this city. For lame.

Sadly, I can no longer eat an entire serving of those nachos in a sitting. Not sure how I managed it. Eating even half a serving of the beef ones tends to make me sick.

Where is this located at?
I could use $3 meals of awesomeness.

You should talk to the manager and get some sort of discount cards for advertising this place on your blog
