Take another look at the sentence:

Elizabeth wanted to enjoy the plate of nachos that she and Jared shared, but she worried about black beans sticking to her teeth, cheese dripping from her chin, and __________.

The blank requires a noun followed by a participle phrase. You chose the possibility that chip crumbs might catapult from her mouth, which is a noun followed by a subordinate clause. You thus have a parallelism error.

Before you continue, review the rules for parallel structure.
