The last two times I have had nachos this past week, I have had bile diarrhea.  This is very odd as I have made these before for myself without any problems at all.  I eat salsa fairly regulaly, with no problems.  I have used the 4 Mexican cheeses before with no problems.  I used light sour cream on it, but normally I use regular, with no problems.  Onions are never a problem.  Canned white-meat chicken has never been a problem.  The only thing that's out of the ordinary are the organic blue corn chips.  I normally use either Tostitos or some vegetable chips (red, green and yellow); I've never used large amounts of blue corn chips before. 
 
But who would think blue corn would bother someone's stomach.  I have had the nachos on non-successive days, and in between my eating them, I have no problems, so this isn't some other problem which just happens to co-incide with my nacho eating.  Anyone else had problem with blue corn chips?  Anyone know why a person might have a problem with them, but not with typical yellow/white corn?

I don't think I've ever eaten blue corn chips before. That's very interesting though. Did you take a look at the ingredients to see if there is anything else different to the ingredients in the other chips besides the blue corn? Almost everything you mentioned that you put on your nachos are a trigger for me so I basically cringed reading your list but boy it sure sounds tasty. I hope you can figure out the culprit... maybe go back to regular chips and see if it was in fact the chips or if you are just having an off week.

Well, so far so good with the bowels today. Last night I had a hamburger with grilled onions, cheese, bacon (turkey), potato chips and a pickle.

I did look at the blue corn chips bag last night and they are made from: organic blue corn meal, salt, water, twist of lime, and sunflower or safflower oil. Unless these were made with safflower oil, and my guts don't like it, it has to be that blue corn. Lays potato chips are now made with sunflower oil and they've not given me problems before.

Good to know you identified the culprit. I agree it sounds strange, but as you know anything is possible with all of this. No more blue corn for you :-)

Yeah, if the hamburger didn't do me in, then it had to be the nacho chips! Lol.

If it makes you feel any better, Des, while I can tolerate my nachos (provided they're made with regular chips!), I can't do any fruit juice at all and raw fruit is touchy. I usually just avoid it all together. And boy, do I sometimes crave apple juice! So I have my dietary limitations too!

Oh, and the blue corn chips are very high in fiber. There's like 3 grams in a serving and 14 servings in what is, to me, a very average-size bag. So I got about 4 meals out of the bag. So that was like 10.5 grams of fiber in one serving, which is more than I ever eat at one time.

I did think that that might be my problem, except that this wasn't just soft or watery poop, but it had a good deal of bile in it, which is usually indicative of having ate something that stirs up excessive production (fried and greasy foods do this). But, I don't know; maybe I had a lot of bile just because that fiber had stuff running through me faster than I could absorb it normally.

Do you think it could be the light sour cream. Do they use some other filler or something else to bind it since there is less fat.

Haven't thought to look, but I have used that container before--not sure on what--but I assume it didn't bother me, or I would have noticed it. I think maybe those chips just had too much fiber.
