Rangers introduce super-sized nachos

Maybe if the big time involves an expanded waistline.
The organization that's responsible for introducing ballpark nachos to the country in the 1970s has taken things up a notch with the unveiling of the Totally Rossome nachos, with the name a tip of the cap to Ross.
Like everything in Texas, these nachos are bigger.
They are served in a pink replica Texas batting helmet. The helmet is filled with tortilla chips that are topped with queso blanco, pico de gallo and a choice of either beef, pulled pork or pulled chicken. If that wasn't enough, good old nacho-cheese flavored Doritos top off the nachos.
Ross had no idea that the nachos were coming until this week. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't get a cut of the new $16 monstrosity.
Super-sizing concessions has become a big thing at Rangers Ballpark, where the club is on its way to setting a new single season attendance record.
Last year the park unveiled a three-pound pretzel that comes with an array of dipping sauces. The big splash this year was made by the Boomstick, a two-foot long hot dog that was introduced on Opening Day. The dog, named in honor of outfielder Nelson Cruz, comes with a sticker price of $26 and has become a ballpark favorite.
Last month the Great Bratbino, a bratwurst version of the Boomstick named for Josh Hamilton, made its debut.
