[CH] Bad "Mexican" food

The worst "Mexican" style food I've had was an uninspired plate of nachos
at a local place called Kristoffer's.  It was just a mound of ordinary
tortilla chips piled high on a plate, with a few ordinary toppings - the
sliced canned jalapenos were the most exotic ingredient.  The middle of the
heap was nothing but chips.  

Believe it or not, the covering of cheese was actually worse than those
miserable stadium nachos.  This stuff hardened as it cooled, so I had to
break the chips off the pile until I thought about arteries and stopped
eating it.  I could lift a big part of the serving as one rigid chunk.

(Pity the dishwasher.)

Redeeming note:  Kristoffer's does make an excellent basket of fish and
chips - not the usual frozem planks of fish, but freshly-battered catfish

Last week the cafeteria here at work served "burritos" that were made ahead
and allowed to dry out in a big pan, with a few lame handfuls of chopped
lettuce and tomato tossed over the top.  The plastic cutlery could barely
penetrate the shells, and I still don't know what the filling was (besides
brown).  But a few drops of Endorphin Rush in the "salsa" they provided
blurred my vision enough that I didn't care.
