Recipe: Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce

Summary: Just look at how silky smooth it is. The taste is so close to my favorite cheese salsa, just more real (woot!). And bonus, you can adjust the thickness according to your needs. Thicker for dipping and thinner for drizzling. I’m excited to make cheese fries and cheesesteaks, my mind is reeling with the possibilities of what I can pour this all over.

Ingredients

    • 4 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk, divided

    • pinch salt

Instructions:

Toss together cheese and cornstarch, in a medium-sized saucepan, until evenly coated. Stir in 1 cup evaporated milk, the hot sauce and salt. Cook, stirring often, over medium-low heat until thickened, smooth and bubbly. Stir in additional evaporated milk, if needed, until desired consistency is reached.
