Process cheese spread, melted and dispensed through a push pump 
may be the greatest crime perpetrated against Mexican cuisine 
(like nachos) in the United States.  This stuff is not only bland 
and oily in flavor and texture, but has a propensity for clogging 
the arteries like plaster-of-paris poured down a drain.

What is shocking is that I have been in places where the menu 
description reads "topped with grated cheddar cheese" and the 
actual food appears with a couple of glops of this repugnant 
yellowish emulsified fat.
