National Nacho Day is November 6th. The inventor is Mexican Agnacio “Nacho” Anaya in 1943. Anaya lived and worked in the Mexican border town of Piedra Negras. Anaya created this snack from some tortillas cut into triangles, placed some cheese and jalapenos on top, then put it into the oven to melt the cheese. When he removed it from the oven, the nacho was born. Love nachos !!
