  2. Taste and add more salt if necessary.

  3. Drizzle the crème and serve. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and sprinkle with the fresh cilantro. Using a spoon drizzle the crème across the top of the nachos.

  4. Serve the pan as is right on the table with little bowls of the garnishes alongside.
