It’s a myth that nachos weren’t invented in Mexico. They actually were — just across the border with Texas in a Mexican town called Piedras Negras.

Nachos, for Brits who are just getting used to both the dish and the pronunciation, is not pronounced with the “a” as in “apple”, but rather like “gnaw – chose.”
Try the recipe below for Nummy Nachos; you’ll never want to look again at a plate of Nachos buried under stodgy day-old chili and beans.
