October 21st is International Nacho Day! Obviously we are celebrating. And we’re encouraging you to partake in the holiday too.
So get your toppings ready and brush up on your nacho history.
Here are some fun facts about nachos:
- Nacho is short for Ignacio because they were invented by Ignacio Anaya in Texas, 1943.
- 26% of people admit to eating more than one plate of nachos in one sitting….guilty!
- Extra cheese is the most popular topping, followed by beef & guacamole.
- The snack caught on in the 1970s after Frank Liberto began selling them at Arlington Stadium, home of the Texas Rangers.
