  1. In a frypan or saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour. Cook gently over a medium heat until the mixture starts to change colour, stirring constantly. Season with some black pepper, then pour in the milk and beat together until the mixture is smooth. Continue cooking until its thick and glossy.
  2. Grate in some fresh nutmeg and add half the cheese. Remove from the heat and mix until the cheese has melted into the sauce. Add the remaining cheese and once again stir until melted. Roughly chop some jalapeno chilies and add to the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  3. Now assemble your Nachos, Layer the corn chips, meat sauce, cheese sauce, salsa and sour cream – it’s just like a Mexican Lasagne. Enjoy !!!
