Nacho Cheese Sauce
The best part of any sports gathering is the food, am I right? Yes, yes it is, so why not make an easy nacho cheese sauce the whole crowd will love!
Anyone in your household enjoys watching football? If so, you’ve probably had the games on your TV non-stop for months!
I can’t remember the schedule, but it felt like every single day of the week there was some type of BIG game going on. It became background noise for me as I went about my usual household business, but Alan and our son Sam were dedicated to EVERY single game!
Nacho cheese sauce ingredients
Since Sam graduated from high school, going to a Friday night football game came to a halt for us. Cheering our son and his team from the sidelines, eating Polish dogs and nachos (chips with cheese sauce) from the food booth was a lot of fun, but being in the thick of the excitement is completely different from watching sports in your living room.
It is for me, anyway. Now, any game we watch from or living room is all about the FOOD! I mean who doesn’t love a good excuse to dig into a nacho cheese platter?!
You will need these basic ingredients to make this cheese dip:
- All-purpose Flour
- Cheddar Cheese
For extra flair include diced jalapeños, ground beef or Rotel tomatoes or diced green chiles!
Once you taste this nacho cheese dip, you will never contemplate eating rubbery pre-made cheese sauce again!
This dip is the whole reason I managed to get through part of the game between the 49ers and Seahawks. The cheese dripped onto gooey finger licking delicious nachos 🙂
