Real Deal Ignacio-Style Nachos

The Original Authentic NachosMatt Taylor-Gross

A balance of pickly, salty, cheesy, and crisp, this recipe—inspired by the original developed by Ignacio Anaya in a Mexican border town—proves that simple is preferable when it comes to nachos. When deep-frying your own tortillas, look for soft tortillas made with all corn (and no flour) for the crunchiest results.
