"Nacho" Ordinary History LessonNachos originated in Piedras Negras, Mexico, which is just across the border from Texas. On a random day in 1943, some American soldiers' wives came into the restaurant of Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya. It was closing time, and there wasn't enough ingredients to make a full meal, but Ignacio did have a few tortillas, some cheese and jalapenos. He tore the tortillas into pieces, and sprinkled the cheese and peppers on top, and stuck in the oven to melt the cheese. The women enjoyed this snack so much, and he called them "Nacho's especiales". Later on "Nacho" opened his own restaurant in Piedras Negras, and called it "Nacho's Restaurant". His original recipe was printed in 1954 in St. Anne's cookbook.
