Have you ever thought about who created the first plate of nachos? Apparently nachos don’t exactly qualify as an old cultural recipe. The story goes that in 1943 several army wives left the army base at Fort Dunan for a fun girls shopping day in Piedras Negras, Mexico. When they finally stopped for dinner, they found out that the restaurant had already closed. However, the maitre d’, Ignacio Anaya, decided to cook something up from what he had on hand so that the ladies wouldn’t go hungry. Ignacio, nicknamed “Nacho,” sliced some tortillas into triangles, covered them in shredded cheddar, and stuck them in the oven. Then he added some sliced jalapenos and presented the hungry ladies as “Nacho’s especiales.” Over time, the dish was shortened to “special nachos,” and then just plain “nachos.”
