17 Nacho Fails That Nearly Ruined Them For Us Forever (PHOTOS)

We take nachos pretty seriously around here. We've agreed amongst ourselves that all it takes for a plate of food to be considered nachos is that there be chips and melted cheese involved. We thought that made nachos impossible to screw up -- and then we started looking at pictures of them on the internet.

This is our nacho fails intervention, guys. You are making too many poor choices for us to sit idly by any longer. These nacho fails nearly ruined this snack for us forever. Please, please don't fall into these terrible nacho traps.

  • 1 Chocolate And Cheese Nachos
    Please let this have been a dare.
  • 2 "Nachos!"
    Something has gone amok with your chips-to-cheese ratio.
  • 3 "Nachos? I got this, guys."
  • 4 "My boyfriend ordered nachos at a restaurant... this is what he got."
    I am so sorry this happened to you. What a nightmare.
  • 5 "Cheese nachos with ketchup."
    Dear lord. WHAT would possess you to do something so depraved?
  • 6 "Chicken Nachos"
    : (
  • 7 "Perhaps not as good as 3 AM nachos at Raffles."
    Is that broccoli? WAIT, IS THAT LETTUCE? Are you okay?
  • 8 "Nachos with cheddar and salsa."
    Okay, now we're in a fight.
  • 9 Cheesy Nacho Mints
    You know, there is a time and a place for everything. This is neither the time nor the place.
  • 10 "Mmm... Nachos"
    Please, please, please don't deconstruct nachos.
  • 11 Curry Chicken Salad Nachos
    There is so much going wrong here, I am not even sure where to start. You've overcooked your hard-boiled eggs. You've put raisins in your chicken salad. Then, you put both of those things on nachos. I hope we never meet.
  • 12 Bell Pepper Nachos
  • 13 "Taco Night's Leftovers' Nachos"
    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
  • 14 Oyster Nachos
    Okay, this actually initiated my gag reflex. WHY WOULD YOU EVER DO THIS TO OYSTERS OR NACHOS?
  • 15 "Nachos."
    I am only going to say this once: YOU HAVE GOT TO MELT THE CHEESE.
  • 16 Seared Tuna Nachos
  • 17 "Quick Dinner"
    Well... um, good luck... with the rest of your night.
