Nachos and Salsa

Nachos and Salsa

Nachos is a Tex-Mex dish from northern Mexico. The dish can be as simple as tortilla chips (totopos) covered with cheese or cheese-based sauce fr a snack. Want a main course add more stuff.

Nachos were first created circa 1943 by Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya.   

In the city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, just over the border from Eagle Pass, Texas, In 1943, the wives of U.S. soldiers stationed at Fort Duncan in nearby Eagle Pass were     on a shopping trip, and arrived at the restaurant after it had already closed for the day.

The maître d'hôtel, Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya, invented a new snack for them with what little he had available in the kitchen: tortillas and cheese. Anaya cut the tortillas into triangles, added shredded cheddar cheese, quickly heated them, added sliced pickled jalapeño peppers and served them, called them  "Nacho's especiales". As word of the dish travelled, the apostrophe was lost, and Nacho's "specials" became "special nachos".


When I choose my theme I had visions of serving nachos with different fillings all the pictures of nachos I see were dancing in front of my eyes. I knew how I wanted to serve them right down to photographing them…

;(  But I could not. Not because I was lazy, me have a lazy bone in my body? Of course not… but   it was too hot, no maid, the kitchen lights conked off, the kitchen fan was not working …..

Anyway we had store brown nachos and store brought salsa and a very funny movie. So much that finally hubby told me take your picture before everything gets over….
