There aren't many of us who don't love that cheesy goodness. I have to ask myself, is it worth it? I'm such a foodie and if I'm going to eat something I know isn't that good for me, which I do all the time, I at least want to have control of the ingredients. That's why I was excited to discover I can make my own Nacho Cheese. It's super easy and YUMMY!
Nacho Cheese (click here for printable recipe)
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheese (You can use any kind I've been using Chipotle cheddar and it's really good)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small can of green chilies or any other pepper you like
In a saucepan over medium heat melt butter and stir in flour
Pour in the milk and stir until thickened (you know it's ready when it coats the back of the spoon)
Keep stirring and mix in the cheese and salt. (you might want to add more cheese depending on the kind you use and if it's finely shredded)
Continue to cook and stir until all the cheese has melted and everything is well blended.
This should take about 15 minutes.
