Nachos Celebrate 65 Years As A Tasty Snack
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Buenos dias, I'm Renee Montagne. According to legend, 65 years ago today, the first nachos were served. Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya is credited with creating the snack food at a restaurant in Piedras Negras, just across the border from Texas along the Rio Grande. As the story goes, some Americans stopped in just when the chef had stepped out. Maitre d' Nacho Anaya threw together some chips and cheese and jalapenos, stuck them under the broiler, and nachos were born. It's Morning Edition.
