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.
