TODAY IS NATIONAL NACHOS DAY!
Nachos were invented by a guy named Ignacio (“Nacho”) in 1943 as a treat for some US Soldiers stationed at Fort Duncan near Mexico’s border. In his hometown of Piedras Negras, they celebrate Nacho by having a Nachos Festival in October. Man, that would certainly be a sight…
Americanized nachos (more than just chips, cheese, and peppers) might include any of the following: black beans, pinto beans, refried beans, chili, cilantro, green onions, chicken, steak, ground beef, guacamole, lettuce, lime juice, olives, garlic, pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, etc., etc. As big as you can pile it on is your tribute to the great Ignacio Anaya.
Delicious carby nachos. If only we could eat your salty cheesiness forever.
Tomorrow is National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day!
