Major League Baseball isn't even to the All-Star break and the folks at Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park are announcing some mid-season additions to their line-up. Not players, mind you; on the field, hope is lost. But on the concourse, those who find themselves hungry have a few new options to choose from.

Like the Texas poutine potato chip nachos, which are a mouthful to say and several hundred mouthfuls to eat. Those are freshly fried potato chips in the picture above, topped with creamy, Texas-style gravy, bacon, cheddar cheese, and a choice of shredded brisket or chicken. And because why not, let's finish them off with some pickled jalapeños. Actually, they look delicious, so get yours at the Chipper in Section 32.

There's more.

Behold the Tonaco! Basically it's a Boomstick, the 2-foot-long hot dog that came out two years ago, but for taco lovers. The 24-inch taco shell is made at the ball park too, and you can order it filled with beef or chicken before it's topped with shredded lettuce, nacho cheese, pico de gallo, sliced jalapeños and sour cream. It's available at home plate in the Casa De Fuego outlet.

Other items show the ballpark's continued willingness to step on pay homage to ethnic flavors. There's a Kaboom kabob big enough to skewer a whole chicken, and a Korean bulgogi beef sandwich. Or maybe you'd prefer a down home bacon waffle on a still. Your possibilities, much like this Rangers' season, appear endless.
