Notcho Average Nachos

Notcho Average Nachos

Nachos were born in the city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico. A few wives of US soldiers stationed in a nearby town were shopping in the city and arrived at a restaurant after it had closed. The restaurant’s maître d, Ignacio Anaya tossed together what she had in the kitchen for the hungry mall-go-ers; tortillas, cheddar cheese, and jalapenos. Ignacio cut the tortillas into triangles, shredded the cheddar cheese, heated them both up and added the jalapeños. He named the dish nachos since “Nacho” is often a nickname for Ignacio in Mexican culture.
