Let us see how this Mexican snack became so popular:
Nachos have an interesting history. It started in the city of Mexico- Piedras Negras near the Texas-Mexico border, when in 1943, American soldier's wives visited Ignacio Nacho Anaya's restaurant. Due to the shortage of time, Ignacio experimented with tortillas, shredded cheese and jalapeno peppers to create a dish which then he baked and served to these women. When they asked what the delicious dish was called, he said, "Nacho’s Especiales." This is how everyone's favourite Nachos came into existence. We thank Ignacio for this.
