Everyone loves nachos. They can be enjoyed as a quick snack after work or as a hearty appetizer served as the ultimate comfort dish.

Nachos have been around since the 1940s when restaurant manager Ignacio Anaya created this dish of tortilla chips, cheese, and pickled jalapeños for a group of Americans in Piedras Negras, in Coahuila, Mexico. According to recent data from YouGov that surveyed more than 4,000 people across the country, 78% of Americans like nachos. You can find nachos at almost any restaurant, each one providing their own version, such as the trash can nachos at Guy Fieri’s Tequila Cocina or the nachitos at Lolita Cocina.
