There’s a reason why nachos are always in the top ten snacks to make for the Super Bowl. You probably know the reason, nachos..duh. But if you just can’t think of the reason, take a peek below.
Crispy-cheesy-meaty-spicy are all words I’d use in a game of nacho charades.
It all happened when a group of ladies on a shopping trip near the Texas border, tried to get some eats at a restaurant that had just closed. The hotel manager took pity on them and cooked up a snack with the few items he had left in the kitchen. The managers name was, wait for it…Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya.
The nacho was born, and bless those women for sticking to their guns and not trying to find another open restaurant. Their feet must have been hurting so bad. Bravo ladies!
I’ve seen so many different and crazy versions of nachos but for me they must have big whole tortilla chips, treat the bag carefully from the moment you pull it from the shelf because you can’t scoop the cheesy goodness with tortilla shards.
A really cheesy sauce and pickled jalapenos are another need-to-have, followed by guacamole and salsa. Luckily for you, these are available from Sabra. I added a few dollops of the Sabra Guacamole and used Sabra’s Farmers Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip to cool down the heat from the jalapeno’s.
I really think you should make these Taco Style Nachos for your Super Bowl party. Do it for Ignacio and the ladies.
