How to avoid soggy Nachos
To avoid a nacho nightmare, I toughen the chips up with a quick pre-bake in a 200° oven, and then sprinkle a protective layer of the grated cheese on them to create a buffer between the chips and the rest of the toppings. The cheese will melt slightly.
No, the chips won’t stay crispy forever, but this will give you a good amount of time before the chips begin to grow soggy.
