The Ultimate Nacho Showdown with Brad Leone and Sean Evans | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Nov 21, 2017
  • When it comes to the culinary arts, nachos are the perfect blank canvas for creativity in the kitchen. But who can stack the tastier plate of tortilla chips, cheese, and toppings-Sean Evans or Bon Appétit's Brad Leone? Stepping into the nacho-battle terror-dome (otherwise known as the Bon Appetit test kitchen), Sean goes head-to-head with another TVclip food legend. As the host of Bon App’s “It’s Alive,” Brad is used to getting wild with his ingredients. But will home-court advantage be any match for Sean’s Chicago-inspired platter? Find out when Bon Appétit Deputy Editor Andrew Knowlton issues his final verdict.

    brad's flavor profile, in general, is way more up my alley, plus he did his due diligence with layering- YOU CANT MAKE THE CHIPS UNDERNEATH SUFFER. but, sean's nachos had a good melt and moisture content. brad's looked a lil dry~
    both of them should give me the nachos

  • jmcosmos
    jmcosmos 2 months ago

    Both of those are such corrupt, untrue, messes that have nothing to do with what nachos are--and I express that view as someone who has eaten O.G. nachos in the Mexican border town restaurant where they were invented during WWII.
    You wanna know what nachos are _really_ about, read this.

  • izzie davison

    Sean’s nachos look genuinely disgusting. Like a dump load of cat food on a pile of chips with some vegetables in a cheese sauce. No layers. No spice. No nicey nice.

    Sean did not know what he was doing with those nachos lol it was over once he put cauliflower and carrots into his ***queso (not kayso, wtf?) I'm gonna have to copy that layering that Brad did with his on my own nachos. Now I want nachos. Great.

    I have never once heard of nachos that were baked. In fact every single time I’ve ever had REAL nachos, they were served in a plastic tray with boiling hot processed cheese sauce drizzled over top from a pump.

    This is facetious of course, though I’ve sadly never had baked nachos
