The nacho cheese sauce is so smelly & # 39; delicious. It's basically a cheese sauce, and what's not to like about it? This is good as a dip with tortilla chips or on a giant plate of nachos. But how you like it, you will love this cheese sauce.

Let's talk cheese choices. You have many options when it comes to nacho sauce and they are all delicious in their own unique ways. Velveeta is a processed American cheese and is a standard option when it comes to nacho cheese sauce. It will be thicker, smoother and creamier than a shredded cheese. You can also use your standard cheddar cheese or other favorite melting cheese, which will make a thinner, slightly grainy sauce.

  • Can I use purchased calcified cheese?

    Fresh grated cheese is best. Additives in pre-shredded cheese that prevent it from clumping affect its ability to melt.

  • Cheese Settings:

    You can use a processed American cheese like Velveeta, or any melting cheese can be made into a nacho cheese sauce including: Cheddar, Colby Jack or even Mozzarella.

  • What is the best way to heat nacho cheese sauce?

    You can either reheat in the microwave, stir every 30 seconds until heated through, or in a pan on the stove over medium heat.
