Canadian-Mex

Jordon Cooper complains about some bad “natchos” which he was served in a local restaurant. As a smart-alecky Californian, I couldn’t resist that one, and was about to send him a kidding comment about how our deprived brethren above the border are so far removed from the land of the Nacho that they have to guess at the spelling.

Then I did a little research and discovered that it’s simply the way they spell it up there. For example, http://www.canadianparents.com/canadacooks/index.htm has a recipe for “natchos” So I was deprived of a chance to stick in the needle. Can’t blame a fellow for the influence of his culture.

Even though Google serves up many listings for “natchos,” it first asks you if you meant “nacho.” However, when you do a search for “nacho,” you are not asked if you meant “natcho.” So there you are, good Canadian restaurateurs. Better change those menus.
