It’s no secret that we are nacho aficionados (a.k.a. “aficionachos”?!),  but admittedly it wasn’t until recently that we realized how great a name Nacho is for a cute pup. Aside from the possibility for puns (“back off, this is nacho dog”), the dish deserves to have a spirit animal that will represent its comforting, easygoing charms. With nachos staging epic comeback in the culinary world, what better way to ensure they stay in the limelight than by naming your pet after chips covered in melted cheese?

Spanning a wide range of breeds, sizes, and personalities, dogs named Nacho are just as awesome as you’d expect.
