Foodie Fun! Love Me Some Nachos

Love me some nachos!! Don’t know about the 7-11 convenience stores in other parts of America but our stores in Texas have make-your-own nachos.

Florida gal who is a Texas transplant. Found an article published by a fellow freelance writer at Writedge.com (WE), titled “Creative Toppings for Nachos” (Ref 1). After reading the WE article, my curiosity was aroused.

Is this wonderful snack food authentic Mexican food OR Tex-Mex or Mexican-American fusion food?

Located two articles where the answer can be found. Turns out that although the nacho was invented in Mexico, it was created for the American palate. Fine by me!! Interesting food history.

1. According to one source, American tradition says nachos were invented by some guy named Nacho Anaya. (Ref 2)

2. Per another the real inventor’s real name is Ignacio Anaya . (“Nacho” was a nickname.) (Ref 3)

Fun Food Fact: In America, National Nachos Day is celebrated on November 6.
