  4. Add in the cream and milk and give a good stir
  5. Keep stirring until it comes to a boil.
  6. Toss in the salt, pepper, and chili flakes, along with the parmesan cheese, and continue stirring (The sauce will thicken pretty quick, so continue to stir)
  7. Once the sauce is thickened, remove from the burner, and set aside.
  1. When you are ready to make your nachos, preheat your oven to 400ºF
  2. Build your nachos on an oven-proof dish or baking sheet
  3. First, add your chips.
