In their simplest form, nachos are tortilla chips covered in nacho cheese or other melted cheese and served with salsa.
First created sometime around 1943, the popular and loved nachos are of Mexican ...origin. Nachos can be made quickly and served as a snack, an appetizer or prepared with extra ingredients as a full meal
It is believed that Ignaci “Nacho” Anaya created the original nachos in the city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, just across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas. The story is told of a group of wives of United States soldiers stationed at Fort Duncan in Eagle Pass were in Piedras Negras on a shopping trip. When done shopping, they arrived late to a restaurant after it had closed for the day. Maître d, Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya served them a snack which he invented from what little was available in the kitchen: tortillas and cheese. Anaya cut the tortillas into triangles, topped them with shredded cheddar cheese and quickly heated them. He then added sliced jalapeno peppers and served them to the ladies. When Anaya was asked what the dish was called, he replied, “Nacho’s especiales“. As the word of this new creation traveled, people tried them, loved them and overtime, the name changed and Nacho’s “specials” became “special nachos”.
