National Nachos Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Nachos Day - Nachos are a popular Mexican dish that can be served as a snack, appetizer, or main course.

The perfect recipe for nachos includes a huge plate of stacked tortilla chips topped with lots of melted cheese, salsa, sour cream, jalapenos, and guacamole!
Nachos originated in the city of Piedras Negras, Mexico. One night in 1943, the wives of ten U.S. soldiers stationed at Fort Duncan arrived at a restaurant called Victory Club after it had already closed for the evening. Restaurant employee Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya quickly put together what he had left in the kitchen for the women, and called the dish "Nachos Especiales."

Word about this tasty treat quickly spread throughout Mexico and Texas. Anaya went on to open his own nacho restaurant and his original nacho recipe was printed in St. Anne's Cookbook in 1954.

Celebrate National Nachos Day by having a big plate stacked high with delicious nachos. Bake your own version or head to your local Mexican restaurant. Enjoy!
