Nacho Montañero

Nacho Montañero is a special dish created right here at Café Las América.

Nacho Montañero is a special dish created right here at Café Las Américas. It combines nachos, a classic favourite, with tasty Colombian burrito ingredients. The generous plate of nachos is topped with beans, sausage or pork crackling, cheese, salsa, and chipotle.

We have northern Mexico to thank for this go-to party food. In 1943, wives of U.S. soldiers stationed in the area arrived at a restaurant after it had already closed. A man named Ignacio “El Nacho” Anaya, the maître d’hôtel, whipped-up a snack for the ladies with what was available in the kitchen: cheese, jalapenos, and tortillas. When asked what it was called, he replied “Nacho’s especiales”, as Nacho was his nickname. The dish has become popular all over the world, and even has a national day!

At Café Las América, we wanted to take a dish familiar to Canadians and add a wow-factor by putting our own Colombian twist on it.
