While not the birthplace, America has become the home of the nacho. While this cheesy, beefy, and often jalapeño covered dish originated from Mexico, it’s one of the most popular foods in the country next to tacos. In fact, we celebrate National Nacho Day annually on November, 6th.

The dish traces its origin to Piedras Negras, Coahuila where the International Nacho Festival is held every 13th through the 15th in October. During the festival, they conduct art and cultural activities, live music performance as well as creating the largest plate of nachos in the world sanctioned by the Guinness Book of World Records.

If you’re a little obsessed with nachos like us, you’ve come to the right place for an epic list of slogans about the dish. As you’ll soon discover there’s no shortage of famous quotes about the dish. Here are some of the best organized by category.

Nachos typically consist of toasted tortilla chips pelted with melted cheese, sometimes with meat, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, corn and tomatoes among other creative ingredients. The dish is usually served as an appetizer or a snack, and sometimes even as a main dish with enough toppings. The original dish created in 1940 even had jalapeños as a main topping.

The dish can be microwaved or baked in the oven at 425 to melt the cheese. While you can certainly enjoy both ways of preparing the meal, the cheese melts better in the oven. No judgement either way though!

We hope you’ve found some inspiring sayings and quotes about the nacho! Before we wrap things up, did you know an estimated 109,498 out of 602,215 restaurants offer nachos on their menu? That’s about an 18.18% of all restaurants in operation. On average, nachos are consumed 1.64 times each year in the United States and have an annual consumption growth rate of about 17.37%. Based on our own eating habits, this estimate feels pretty low.
