Thanks to his love for Nacho, Bobby Flay eventually began developing a new, commercially available product: cat food. Frustrated at the lack of cat-specific food brands, he launched the appropriately named Made by Nacho in 2021, which features dry food, wet food, and treats. Made by Nacho’s secret ingredient is bone broth, which he included because “It’s very palatable for cats. It’s packed with protein and also provides the extra hydration cats need” (via People).
Even though Nacho had his own Instagram page, he frequently appeared on Flay’s page, too. Whether the feline was promoting Made by Nacho and showing cute behind-the-scenes videos from cat commercials, or showcasing the many adorable gifts Flay gave him, the affection Flay had for his cat was regularly on display. “I often wonder if I wasted three decades without a cat roaming my home, especially when I look into Nacho’s eyes and I can almost hear his thoughts,” Flay told CBS in 2017.
Nacho has a sister, Stella, and just a week ago, Flay introduced Stella and Nacho’s newest sibling, Canelo, in an Instagram photo. While Canelo won’t get a chance to know his big brother, the newest member of the Flay family will probably get just as many plates of nachos and catinis as his siblings.
