Five-Ingredient Cheese Sauce

Nachos aren’t complete without a good cheese sauce. However, a lot of people opt to get store-bought cheese sauce for their nachos rather than making it on their own. It’s a shame because it’s so easy to make cheese sauce at home. You can do it using this simple recipe for five-ingredient cheese sauce.

This five-ingredient cheese sauce is as simple as it sounds. You only need cheese, butter, milk, cayenne pepper and flour for the sauce, plus salt to taste. Making the sauce is only a matter of mixing these ingredients in a pan, too. This cheese sauce is perfect for nachos, but you can also use it for dipping chips, bread, or any dish that you think requires a cheese sauce. This lovely recipe is from Joanne of Fifteen Spatulas.


2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 cup whole milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
8oz block sharp cheddar cheese, grated
