Nachos are a tex-mex dish created by Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya in 1943 for the wives of US soldiers on a shopping trip to Piedras Negras. They arrived after the restaurant where he worked had closed for the day, so Anaya used kitchen left-overs to create a quick snack. He cut tortillas into triangles, added longhorn cheese and warmed them. Before serving his "Nachos Especiales," he added jalapeno slices for spice.
I love nachos, so I thought I'd share my recipe.
