We have a different treat tonight we prepared our own version of Nachos. Last week I bought Nachos chips as it is on sale, on that we had an idea of preparing Nachos on the coming weekend. So we bought our ingredients the last time we shop except for the salsa that we bought tonight.
If you don’t know yet Nachos are a popular food based on nixtamalized corn, of Mexican origin associated with Tex-Mex cuisine that can be either made quickly to serve as a snack or prepared with more ingredients to make a full meal.
We just combined all the ingredients in the plate, the Nachos chip first followed by Nachos cheese, the hot salsa, green olives and green onions, meat with kidney beans and lastly mozarella cheese to taste.
According to what I have read in Mexico itself they are rather called “totopos”. In their simplest form, nachos are tortilla chips (totopos) covered in melted cheese and salsa. First created circa 1943 by Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya, the original nachos consisted of fried corn tortillas covered with melted cheddar cheese and pickled jalapeño peppers.
