NEW YORK (PIX11) – Friday marks International Nacho Day! 

The dish was first created during the 1940s when a group of soldiers stationed in Mexico was looking for a quick and easy snack. Nachos became an instant hit and staple at many Mexican restaurants across the United States. 

New York Living’s Vanessa Freeman headed to Ed’s Lobster Bar in Little Italy for a look – and taste – of what owner Ed McFarland is cooking up for the holiday.
