I'm at an age where I really need to be eating healthier foods. I am a total failure at this endeavor, as evidenced by last night's dinner. What you see before you here in this article, I call Stupid Nachos. It was a STUPIDILY huge portion of food. They were STUPIDILY unhealthy. I was STUPID for eating the whole thing. But they were STUPID good!!!

Let's build some Stupid Nachos!

The first thing I did was season some chicken with garlic salt, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin. I quickly fried the seasoned chicken in some olive oil before shredding it up with some wooded spoons.

All seasoned up with Mexican food inspired spices!

Next, it was time to start layering up my Stupid Nachos. I started with a backing sheet covered in foil, and covered that with corn chips.

The base!

The next layer is one my wife bemoaned. Refried beans! Mmmmmmmm, I love refried beans, but they interrupt marital bliss. :D

After the refried beans went down, I sprinkled my Stupid Nachos with a healthy helping of shredded cheddar cheese. The baking sheet of stupidity then went into a preheated oven for just a couple of minutes to melt the cheese.

Cheese.

Melty cheese!

But melty cheese is NEVER enough! I had to introduce goopy gold to my Stupid Nachos. I broke a can of liquid cheese goop to further enhance the stupidity I would be eating.

Goopy gold!

Dare I say, I added something healthy to my Stupid Nachos? Diced tomato and onion went on top of the goopy gold. These additions added some nice color to the pile of stupidity!

See. Healthy!

See. Healthy!

In my opinion, nachos need some kick. My Stupid Nachos are no exception and pickled jalapeno slices were sprinkled onto the heap. I absolutely love the heat and tangy flavor that pickled jalapenos add to food!

YES!!!

YES!!!

After adding little portions of heat, something had to be added to cool it down a touch. Homemade guacamole and sour cream went down on this mess to counter some of the kick from the jalapenos.

Then, just for something a little different, smoky Mexican street-corn was dished out on top. This added a nice little layer of something different to the flavors. I loved it!

And then the final ingredient was poured on top! A spicy salsa was added to turn it back up on these Stupid Nachos.

Hot salsa on top, to turn it back up!

And there you have it! A huge, out of control, messy pile of Stupid Nachos. Waaaaayyyyyy too much food for one person to be eating for dinner. Waaaaayyyyy too unhealthy for me to be eating for dinner. But I make stupid choices! :D

I LOVE before-and-after photos! :D
