Homemade Nacho Cheese

Have you ever made homemade Nacho Cheese before? We hadn’t until just a few months ago and we couldn’t believe just how easy and quick the recipe was!

Now, I’m going to come right out and say that this recipe is very similar to the classic nacho cheese sauce you’d find at the movies or from the school cafeteria. It’s a little lighter in color, but tastes just like that popular nacho cheese. We sometimes pick it up from the store, but very rarely, so we were happy to find a recipe that we could make at home that was made with ingredients we usually have on hand.

How to Make Nacho Cheese

We love that this recipe is great for nachos or for any kind of dipping at any party. We like to make Taco Salad and think this would be great addition. More than anything, we love that the recipe is so simple. Here are the easy steps…

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour.
  2. Pour in milk and stir until mixture thickens.
  3. Add cheese and salt. Stir over heat until cheese has melted and ingredients have blended together.If you like spice, add chopped jalapenos to the cheese mixture.

The jalapenos add some spice, but if you don’t want that, you can also add salsa or even some hot sauce for a bit of nip. 😉

Nacho Cheese Sauce

We are excited to officially know how to make this nacho cheese sauce. It’s pretty addicting and although it was gone in one sitting at our house, we are positive it can be jarred and reheated for future use. 😉
