Simple Nacho Cheese Sauce

Delicious nacho cheese sauce doesn’t have to be hard to make or packed with processed cheese products that aren’t even food. Well, real food. Here is a homemade cheese sauce using real natural ingredients and made from scratch.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup whole milk
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions

In a saute pan, melt the butter over a medium-low heat. Sift in the flour and mix until well

Add the milk and turn the heat to medium-high. Whisk the mixture until well combined.

Add the salt and cayenne pepper.

Once the mixture begins to simmer, reduce to medium heat. Adjust as needed to keep a low simmer. Cook for 2 minutes. The sauce should thicken.

Remove the pan from the heat. Add in a handful of the cheese and mix until it is fully melted and incorporated. Repeat until all of the cheese has been incorporated.

If you keep heat during this step, you risk the cheese breaking.
