Did you know that nachos were created by a man named Nacho?
In 1940, in the city of Piedras Negras, Coahuila, just inside the Mexican border from Eagle Pass, Texas, Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya created nachos at the Victory Club when a cutomer asked if he could bring her group of ladies a different kind of snack. After tasting the snack, they asked what it was called. Anaya responded, "Well, I guess we can just call them Nacho's Special."
The name stuck and his snack grew in popularity, especialy at sporting events. Being easy to dish up quickly and be eaten without silverware, made this a perfect snack.
