Nacho Cheese Sauce


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 6 ounces shredded medium cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter.
  2. Add the flour and taco seasoning and whisk until the mixture becomes bubbly and foamy.
  3. Continue cooking and whisking the mixture for about a minute.
  4. Whisk the milk into the flour and butter mixture, turning up the heat slightly to allow the milk to come to a simmer while whisking.
  5. Once thickened enough to coat a spoon, turn off the heat.
  6. Stir in the shredded cheddar, one handful at a time, until melted into the sauce. If the sauce becomes too thick, simply whisk in an additional splash of milk.
  7. Stir in the black pepper and any other additional seasonings, to taste.
  8. Serve hot with chips or over a plate of nachos.
