Nachos made at home are the ultimate in movie night or game day indulgences. A few steps can ensure that you make the world's BEST nachos. First, LAYER! This way every chip gets the cheesy, sour creamy, spicy love. Second, add two kinds of cheese! I use my signature blender queso for the perfect stay-creamy sauce, as well as the melty power of mozzarella. Feel free to mix it up with the cheese you prefer.
