Nature has offered us a lot of things since the dawn of time, there are countless food products that have been created over the centuries, and each of the food was invented by someone. Some of those were happy accidents, and some took years of effort. Every food on this earth has their own story. Out of all the food, Nacho cheese sauce is one the happiest thing happened to this world, but do you know the story behind the famous Nacho cheese sauce?
Nachos were invented by Ignacio Anaya, who made the first batch for a group of hungry U.S. military wives at a restaurant in Mexico, near Fort Duncan. Anaya sliced some tortilla chips into triangles and fried them and finally, covered them with shredded cheddar and sliced jalapeños, and put the concoction in the oven for a couple of minutes. He named the dish after his nickname, Nacho, and the rest is history. The melted cheese that covered the Nacho was called Nacho Cheese Sauce.
But Nacho Cheese Sauce is just melted processed cheese with or without peppers and other spices; it has nothing to do with Nachos.
