How to make Homemade Tuna Nachos
Homemade Tuna Nachos Recipe – Nachos originally started in Northern Mexico, at the small town Piedras Negras. That’s when Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya invented this crunchy and delicious snack. It all began when he needed to rustle cooking in the Victory Club, Piedras Negras, Mexico, to serve the group of US military wives.
The only ingredients available Ignacio Anaya picked at the time were the grated cheese, jalapeño peppers, and the tortillas. He fried the tortillas, and in the separate bowl, he mixed and cooked the two remaining ingredients. Its taste surprised the curious mind of those people back then. That’s when its popularity spread throughout the country, and eventually, around the world.
As years passed by, a lot of cooking geniuses tried to modify the Nacho recipe. They began to make a variety to create unique but delectable dishes. Today, even Filipinos love to try this delicious snack.
