Easy Nacho Cheese

What You Need:

-Sharp Cheddar -Evaporated Milk -Chili Powder -Pickled Jalapeño Brine -Salt


Start by shredding sharp cheddar cheese. Using block cheese that you shred yourself instead of pre-shredded cheese makes a much better sauce.

Shred Cheese


Add evaporated milk to a sauce pot along with chili powder. Heat and stir over medium-high until it comes to a simmer.

Heat Milk And Seasoning


When it reaches a simmer, turn the heat down to low. Begin adding the shredded cheese, one handful at a time, stirring it in until completely melted before adding the next handful.

Add Cheese


Continue adding cheese until it has all been added to the sauce. Finally, stir in brine from pickled jalapeños. Give the cheese a taste and add a pinch of salt, if needed.

Add Brine


Pour your nacho cheese sauce over a plate of chips, your favorite vegetables, or just about anything. Cheese makes everything better. :P
