We just celebrated National Sandwich Day and National Candy Day, but now it’s time for National Nachos Day and the freebies that go along with that. While it may not be Taco Tuesday, National Nachos day is a pretty big deal and restaurants are ready to celebrate by offering deals on their nachos.
Nachos originated in Piedras Negras, Mexico, which is located just south of the border from Texas. According to the stories, one day in 1943, wives of American soldiers stationed nearby came into a restaurant owned by Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya. He had to make them something to eat.
It was a few minutes past closing time, and Ignacio didn’t have enough leftover ingredients to make a full, proper meal, so he took the tortillas he had left, cut them into pieces, sprinkled cheese over them along with what else he had left and baked them for a few minutes before serving them. When the women asked him what the dish was called, he answered “Nacho’s especiales,” and the nacho was born.
Here are some deals to help you celebrate Nachos day:
