The Best Nacho Cheese Sauce I Have Ever Made

Our youngest child got it in his head that I needed to make nacho cheese sauce while we were in the middle of grocery shopping last weekend. I don’t mind making nacho cheese sauce, but I didn’t have a recipe…thank goodness for smart phones. I looked one up real quick and we got all of the ingredients. This is the best nacho cheese sauce I have ever made.

4 oz. pepper jack cheese, shredded
4 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk, divided
2 teaspoons hot sauce OR 1/3 cup salsa

Toss together cheese and cornstarch, in a medium-sized saucepan, until evenly coated.

Stir in 1 cup evaporated milk and the hot sauce/salsa.

Cook, stirring often, over medium-low heat until thickened, smooth and bubbly.

Stir in additional evaporated milk, if needed, until desired consistency is reached.

Add extra hot sauce/salsa to reach desired consistency and/or heat.

What did the family think? Only three of us were home to try this, but it was gone in a HURRY!

Where did this recipe come from? I adapted it from Kitchen Simplicity and they adapted it from Serious Eats.

Crescent Roll Cheesecake

This recipe has been all over Pinterest. I couldn’t resist…it has cream cheese in it. Yum!

-2 cans crescent rolls (I used the kind from Immaculate Baking.)
-2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/4 cup butter (melted)
-Cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Unroll and spread one can of crescent rolls on bottom of ungreased 9×13 inch pan. Be sure to smooth out the seams before adding the filling.

Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Spread mixture over crescent rolls. Unroll and spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture, being sure to press together any seams.

Spread melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 20-30 minutes.

We had this with bacon and eggs…everyone loves breakfast for dinner.

What did the family think? The kids LOVED these!

Did I change anything? I think these might also be good of you took out the sugar and cinnamon and added some berry jelly in with the cream cheese. I haven’t tried it, but it might be a nice variation.
