Nachos

Nachos were invented in the 1940’s by Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya, a maitre d’hotel in Piedras Negras Mexico when he created a new snack made of quartered and baked corn tortilla’s topped with cheese and sliced jalapeno peppers to satisfy some US soldier’s wives who had arrived at his hotel after the kitchen closed.  The recipe has since expanded to include all sorts of toppings.
