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!
