Nachos are one of those foods that I never know if they're truly Latin or some weird, American bastardized version of Mexican food. Though, to be honest, does it really matter when they taste SO GOOD?

Well, according to Nacho Mama (she would know, right?), Nachos are in fact Mexican, since they were invented IN Mexican and BY a Mexican. And what better way to celebrate their delicious invention than with these 5 finger-licking Latin nacho recipes for National Nachos Day which is, in fact, today! My stomach is honestly rumbling with all of these and I can't decide which is better. Well, perhaps I'll have a few of them--and I encourage you to do the same! They're the perfect snack AND make a nice, hearty dinner with some of these great topics. Dig in!
