Assembling the Nachos to Bake 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray. This helps with cleanup and prevents the shredded cheese and other toppings from sticking to the baking sheet. 

Add an even layer of tortilla chips. You can use your favorite tortilla chip brand or homemade chips if you like.
