What is Nachos?
Nachos are a snack food made from tortilla chips topped with melted cheese and potentially other ingredients. They were created in 1943 by Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya in Piedras Negras, Mexico, for a group of American soldiers' wives who had arrived at the restaurant after it had closed. Anaya fried tortillas cut them into triangles, and added cheese, calling the dish "Special Nachos" or "nachos especiales." The word "nachos" first appeared in print in a 1954 advertisement for the Victory Club and later in a cookbook published by the Church of the Redeemer in Eagle Pass, Texas. The International Day of the Nacho is celebrated on October 19th with the International Nacho Festival held in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico. The first ballpark nachos were served at Arlington Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
