    An absurd amount of saturated fat and cholesterol.

    All the yellow stuff is about 90% saturated fat.

    Funny pic xring. The grease stains on the wax paper it's wrapped in made me laugh. Imagine this thing sitting in the refrig for an hour then being put on a plate; cold grease is one of the least appetizing things I ever want to eat.

    If you're old enough, remember the cute Jack in the box ad with Rodney Allen Rippey when he was 5 yrs old? He couldn't get his mouth over their Jumbo Jack.

    Speaking of this thing sitting in the refrigerator, there is a Mexican restaurant near my brother in Arizona to which all the Mexican workers go for lunch and dinner. So my brother thought they ought to know good Mexican food. So he went and not only was the food fantastic, but the prices were unbeatable. However, he said you can't take it home and refrigerate it because it congeals after being in the refrigerator. The only reason I can think of that this would happen is that it is cooked with lots of solid fat. So much for healthful.
