For the ranchera sauce :

  • 3 roma tomatoes
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1/2 habanero pepper, stemmed
  • 3/4 morita chile, stemmed
  • 1 guajillo chile, stemmed
  • 1/2 yellow onion, julienned
  • 2 serrano chiles, stemmed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup pilloncillo (unrefined Mexican sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • Dash of Mexican cinnamon

For the nachos :

  • 3 ounces ranchera sauce
  • 8 ounces flour tortilla chips
  • 3 ounces black beans
  • 2 ounces salsa
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 ounces crema, for garnish
  • 3 ounces guacamole, for garnish
  • 2 ounces pickled jalapeños, for garnish
  • 1 ounce queso fresco, for garnish
  • 1 sprig cilantro, for garnish


For the ranchera sauce :

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the roma tomatoes, garlic, habanero pepper, morita chile, guajillo chile, and yellow onion on a baking sheet and roast in the oven until the peppers are slightly charred and the tomatoes have broken down.

Remove from the oven and transfer to a blender. Add the remaining ingredients. Blend together to a purée, strain, and let cool. Keep the oven on.

For the nachos :

Ladle the ranchera sauce onto a large, round, ovenproof plate. Put 3-4 ounces of the tortilla chips on top of the sauce, followed by the black beans, salsa, and a thin layer of the grated Monterey Jack cheese, and melt in the oven. Add 1 more layer of 3-4 ounces of chips and cheese, and melt again in the oven until slightly golden brown. Carefully remove from the oven and garnish with the remaining ingredients.
