How many nachos can you really eat? Test your limits at El Chingon’s FREE Nacho Day competition this Sunday
Yeah, we get it. You love nachos. So do we. But you’d never catch us eating a whole plate by ourselves (though if no one is watching, we definitely would). If you’re into watching or being watched, El Chingon has a stack of nachos with your name written all over it in queso.
On Sunday, Nov. 6, at 2 PM, the Fort Worth restaurant is hosting an “Ultimate Nacho Challenge eating contest,” to celebrate National Nachos Day. We thought that was every day, but we’re not going to argue with a restaurant whose motto is “Bad Ass Mexican” and stubborn enough to hold a eating event at the same time as the ultimate eating event, Chefs for Farmers annual food and wine festival.
The Fort Worth competition will begin promptly at 2 p.m. when the first oversized platter of El Chingon’s nachos hits the table. If you’re new to eating, the rules are simple: The two-person team that eats the most nachos (cheese blend, Mexican citrus cream, jalapeño, avocado cream, pico de gallo and guacamole) wins. Water’s free; you gotta pay for hooch.
The free competition is limited to ten teams. No kids under 18, which seems like a smart move for the restaurant accountant paying for the nachos. It’s free to enter, so at least the worst team still gets to eat nachos on the house.
In it to win it? It’s free. Register online by Saturday, Nov. 5 here.
