An American chef George Speck was the first to make potato chips in 1853. He had prepared a plate of French fries for a diner who returned them and complained that they were too thick and probably the worst fries that could be ever prepared by a chef. Although Speck decided to teach the diner a lesson by making the chips worse but his next try to make French fries worse proved to be a success which delighted the diner and soon the entire restaurant requested George’s new fries.

Today, enchilada has earned open praise from many food lovers around the world with the internationalization of food. Most chefs are always keen to look for the best foods of each culture to share with their friends and customers.
