10 restaurants to enjoy Tex-Mex on National Nachos DayMonday , November 2nd , 2015
Traditional nachos feature a stack of crispy tortilla chips topped with cheese, salsa, jalapenos, guacamole and sour cream. The dish is perfect for sharing, and can be served as a snack or main course meal with the addition of a protein.
Nachos are said to originate in Piedras Negras, Mexico, a city located off the Mexico-United States border in Texas. In 1943, wives of U.S. soldiers visited a restaurant that had already closed its kitchen. A quick-thinking employee, Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya, put together a plate of leftovers and presented it to the women, giving rise to nachos!
In honour of Ignacio’s claim to fame, and to mark National Nachos Day, grab your closest amigos and amigas and tuck into the Tex-Mex classic at the following feel-good restaurants:
