History of Nachos Day
One day in 1943, when the wives of some American soldiers stationed nearby walked into the restaurant owned by Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya, he had nothing to serve them. It was a few minutes past closing time and Ignacio really didn't have enough ingredients to make any real, full dish. All he had were a few tortillas, some shredded cheese and some pickled jalapeno peppers. So, he cut up the tortillas into pieces, sprinkled whatever he had over them, and baked them for a few minutes before serving them. The women enjoyed the snack a lot and when they asked Ignacio what it was called, he answered "Nacho's especiales". The word of this new hot snack travelled fast through Texas and the Southwest. Anaya's original Nachos recipe was printed in the 1954 St. Anne's Cookbook.
