‘Subway Nachos’ Are The Hack That DESERVES To Be A Real Menu Item

There’s a plethora of ways to customize sandwiches at Subway with the variety of ingredients available.

One Subway worker on TikTok, @miladfromsubway, has given the internet one to salivate over, and one we’re angry isn’t actually on the Subway menu: Subway “nachos.”

One day @subway will sponsor me, and we will put Nachos on the menu 😤 Reply to @brianspilner98

These are clearly something that others have created before, as Milad actually got the suggestion from one of his followers in the comments who claimed to be a former worker at the sandwich chain. Milad also gave it a pretty high rating, listing it as a 9.96/10 on his TikTok and telling Foodbeast that they were “delicious, tasted like a legit platter.”

To make the nachos, Milad started by dumping an entire bag of Doritos chips onto some of the chain’s paper. He added on steak, cheese, peppers, onions, jalapenos, and Subway’s Chipotle Southwest sauce. The entire creation then went into the toaster to melt the cheese and broil everything else to perfection.

Honestly, it looks really good, and something Subway needs to consider adding to their menu. It’s a simple enough upgrade – just swap the bread out for chips — all things already in the store — and customers would definitely go nuts for it, if that TikTok is any indication.

I know Subway tends to stay in the sandwich lane, but judging by how tasty these nachos look, plus the ability to customize them to however folks want, it gives them a unique edge that they absolutely should consider taking advantage of.

Top 6 Food News Stories This Week

The first week of June proved to be just as spicy as the weather was warm in regards to food news. Someone found a unique way to use Sriracha, Mario Batali revealed his true sentiments about his departure from the popular Iron Chef television series and there was a handful of news tied to the celebration of National Donut Day back on June 1st.

Here’s a look at the top 6 stories from the past week:

1. Sprayracha — The Game Changing Way to Use Sriracha

It’s now becoming a little known fact that Sriracha is one of the most popular ways to spice up your dish, ever. This week, the most buzzworthy piece of news didn’t come from a big name brand, or a bacon wrapped pig — it was one lone foodie’s addition of a spray nozzle and hopes of getting some even, spicy coverage on their food.

2. Mario Batali Left Iron Chef Due to ‘Skinny Little Actresses’

Mario Batali seems to be a recent focus of media attention. Some think him pompous, others shower him with praise — but don’t put a skinny little actress in the judge’s panel to comment on his cooking. He. Will. Rip. Her. Another.

3. Pizza Hut launches P’Zolos, Essentially Fancy Hot Pockets

News of Pizza Hut stuffing their ingredients into long-formed calzones was apparently very buzzworthy this week. The first citing on the official Pizza Hut website showed up late May, but word of mouth stayed strong into the early weeks of June — subsequently making it one of the top stories of the week.

4. NYC Food Truck Launches a ‘Douche Burger’ That Costs $666

Regardless of how tacky or ‘douchey’ it may seem, putting a batch of expensive ingredients on a burger — regardless of how it tastes — is definitely a way to get on the news. To top it off, they’re charging $666 for it. Oh yeah, it’s also coming off of a food truck. Fancy Shmancy.

 5. Subway restaurants testing a line of nachos

Not what you’d expect from Subway, the chain is using some of their non-traditional store fronts to test a line of Subway Nachos. Some folks have reacted quite positively, foaming at the mouth at cheese sauce drizzled over Nacho Cheese-flavored Doritos and topped with jalapenos. Others think it’s lazy, disgusting and not the caliber they expected from Subway. Either way, people are talking about it — so it made the cut for the top stories of the week.

6. Spirits Maker Launches a Glazed Donut-flavored Vodka

Eco-friendly spirit brand Vodka 360 launched a well-timed Glazed Donut-flavored vodka this past June 1st, which coincidentally was National Donut Day. The combination of celebrating donuts on June 1st along with the trend of flavored-alcohol usually is well received amongst Foodbeast readers.

Are Subway Restaurants Testing a Line of Nachos?

If Subway expanded their menu to include nachos, apparently, this is how they would look.

According to pictures of signage snapped at a Subway location nestled within a Nashville, Tennessee Wal-Mart, Subway Nachos appear to include Doritos, nacho cheese, and jalapenos.

The combination is not exactly what we’d expect from Subway, but the idea of the sandwich chain’s theme of customization adds some interesting depth to what would be a rather underwhelming product launch from. Imagine customizing your nachos with avocados, meatballs, or maybe some Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki? Now that’s some depth.

The base of Doritos nachos is simple, but the possibilities are endless. There is also no word on whether this is just some franchisee’s creative doing, or a possible regional test for a possible national product launch. That’s pretty official looking signage though.

This begs the question, if Subway made nachos, what would you put on them? I for one would skip the Doritos and maybe go the Kettle Cooked chips route, crumble up some feta, jalapenos, spinach, and maybe some of that chipotle sauce? Goodness…now the idea of Subway Nachos doesn’t sound so ridiculous.
