RICHMOND, B.C. (November 4, 2020) – Since 1943, nachos have won the hearts of millions of snackers across North America. Originally created by Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya as a crunchy snack with fried tostada triangles covered in melted cheese and sliced jalapeños to serve to U.S. Army wives in Fort Duncan, the recipe has made its way to homes and restaurants across the southwestern region of the U.S. and eventually to sports stadiums and street fairs across North America earning viral fandom for its unique blend of flavours and textures.
Whether serving nachos the traditional way or adding a culinary twist on the original recipe, celebrate National Nachos Day this Friday, November 6th with Que Pasa® Organic Tortilla Chips & Salsas to build the perfect base for any nachos platter. Sourcing organic, all-natural ingredients like organic tomatoes and whole kernel organic yellow and white corn, Que Pasa Tortilla Chips & Salsas are the perfect, better-for-you chip and salsa combination that reimagines one of America’s favorite savory snacks. Que Pasa is available in Loblaws, Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Whole Foods Markets, and many other retailers nationwide.
“Who can imagine life without nachos?” asks Que Pasa El Presidente Arjan Stephens. “Ignacio Anaya was a great visionary, and we must all honour him by celebrating with a big plate of nachos, made with Que Pasa Tortilla Chips, the best in the world. Happy National Nachos Day!”
In 2012, Que Pasa joined the Nature’s Path Foods family. Both were independent and family-owned companies with a deep social and environmental commitment to organics and sustainability. Que Pasa and Nature’s Path go together like chips and salsa.
Unlike typical corn tortilla chips that use processed corn flour, Que Pasa grounds whole corn kernels using volcanic stones – the traditional way of making tortilla chips that has been passed down through generations. Que Pasa’s crunchy chips are coloured with all natural white, yellow and blue corn and are GMO-free, nut-free, and gluten-free, using only the highest quality ingredients and making them the perfect guilt-free chips to build your own nachos.
To top off nachos, Que Pasa’s salsas are bursting with juicy, ripe, organic tomatoes and a unique spice blend in three delicious flavors – Mild, Medium and Chipotle. Each flavor is made with a few simple ingredients for a wholesome taste without the greasiness from heavily processed and refined products.
