One of the simplest and best snacks on the planet, yet so many people fuck it up. In terms of toppings, put on whatever you dig, but the way the cheese is put on is essential. You can't just lay down a plate of chips and then sprinkle some cheese on top.
Here's what I do:
Grate a big bowl of cheese. Marble is what I prefer for nachos, but go with your favorite. Jack is good as well. Get a plate and cover the plate with cheese. Lay down a layer of nachos, cover them with cheese. Lay down another layer of nachos, cover them with cheese. Repeat until you have enough layers to satisfy your hunger. The cheese layering is VERY important. The worst goddamn thing on the planet is eating the top layer and only having a bunch of measly chips remaining and no cheese.
In terms of toppings, I like ground beef, jalapenos, diced tomatoes, black olives and green onions. I don't like dumping sour cream, guacamole, salsa, and/or chili on the nachos because they get soggy as fuck. So if you like any or all of those, it's best to put them in a little dish on the side.
I'm not a big fan of beans on nachos. The taste just doesn't mix with the other flavors.
Nuke or put in oven until the cheese is melted, but don't melt too much or else you get cheese that hardens to the plate and nachos.
