5 Great Gutbombs: Introducing the Gutbomb Index (GBI)

gut3.jpg
1. Potato Chip Nachos at Swine -- Even the FiTR staff was nearly frightened away upon encountering this supreme example. To begin with, the thing is ugly as hell (though it tastes great). And what is the purpose of the cardboardy tortilla chips in conventional nachos? To absorb grease. Potato chips shed it, like water off an amphibian's back. The white stuff is supposed to be cheese, but really it's more like molten mayo. This dish might serve as a definition of gutbomb. GBI: 100
