Any nachos recipe that features cheese sauce, grated cheese, and crumbled cotija cheese is a nachos recipe we can get behind (clearly Serious Eats is on our level). These fully loaded nachos also boast a healthy dose of sour cream and hearty drizzles of crema on top of all the cheese, beans, chips, and crunchy veggies.

My first realization is that fully loaded nachos need both cheese sauceand melted grated cheese. While I love nachos that have just one or the other, any self-respecting ultimate version has to have both because they each bring something different to the dish. The cheese sauce is smooth and silky and easy to drizzle, which means you can practically guarantee getting some of it on each tortilla chip.
