Ricos Invented Concession Nachos!
The Liberto Family has been in business for more than 100 years! The great-great-grandchildren are now hard at work creating new variations of Americas and the worlds, favorite snack foods… including nachos, tortilla chips and flavored popcorn! These mouthwatering products are sold in the U.S. and in over 50 countries around the world! Ricos Products Co. is the authentic home of Concession Nachos.
In fact the nacho movement started right here in San Antonio, Texas when Frank Liberto invented Concession Nachos in 1976. Nachos were first served at Arlington Stadium in Texas. Frank started Ricos Products Co. soon afterwards to keep up with the demand.
The company then introduced Concession Nachos at Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. Nachos catch the imagination of everybody including the announcers. Someone gives one of the announcers, Howard Cosell, nachos during the game. He loves them and likes the funny sounding name. That night, Cosell and the broadcast team work references to nachos into the game analysis as often as possible. As part of their usual prattle, they “mix nachos” with their commentary, and whenever there is a good pass or touchdown, they scream in a high pitch, “That was nacho man!” “What a nacho run that was!” and “Hey, that’s nachos all the way!”. Cosell loves describing great plays by calling them “nachos”. He gives the food national recognition, making the term an acceptable adjective for spectacular events, and forever securing its spot as one of the sport watcher’s favorite finger foods. Nachos may have remained a Texas specialty if not for Howard Cosell and Monday Night Football.
