The secret to this recipe is the way you build it. You have to layer the criss-cut fries, starting with the largest on the bottom, using the cheese sauce between the layers to hold the pyramid together as you build it. It's also very important that the cheese sauce be the right consistency — too thin and it won’t hold together, too thick and the texture won't be right.

Vegan Nachos
Loaded with tons of cheese and sour cream, nachos aren't usually a vegan-friendly option. Until now. A flavorful sauce made from raw cashews, spiced up with jalapeños and jarred pimentos, makes a perfect dairy-free alternative. Click here to see The Ultimate Guide to Nachos.
