1. Chorizo Nachos
El Vez (New York, NY)
Approximate calorie count: 1,278
Philly's El Vez rolled into New York this week -- and we actually mean rolled, because walking must be impossible after downing a pizza-pie dish full of chorizo-topped nachos. But these aren't just any nachos: these chips are specially made to hold the hefty weight of perfectly distributed melty cheese, sour cream, jalapeño, pickled red onion, and tongue-tingling chorizo without crumbling.
The place also has a Martini de Mezcal, and you're gonna want to see it...
Liz Childers is a food/drink editorial assistant at Thrillist, and she's pretty into the idea of special nacho chips that'll never break her heart by crumbling. Follow her to nacho perfection at @lizchilders1.
