KERN COUNTY, Calif. (KGET) — Saturday marks National Nachos Day.
The first recorded nacho dish came from Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya in 1943. He worked at a restaurant in Piedras Negras in Mexico near the Texas border. He whipped up the first nachos for a group of U.S. Army wives using fried tortilla triangles, jalapenos, and shredded cheese. It was such a big hit, the snack was named after him.
Today the toppings have expanded to include things like beef, chicken, and seafood along with a variety of seasonings.
We asked: Who makes the best nachos in town? Here are your responses.
