Creamy Nacho Cheese Sauce Recipe




Unsurprisingly, the main ingredient in nacho cheese sauce is, well, cheese. Olayinka uses shredded medium cheddar cheese, though she does note that you can absolutely use a different kind. “I would suggest using a sharp cheddar for best results,” she suggests. “Or, you could try a blend of cheeses for a different flavor.”

Aside from the cheese, you’ll need a few other ingredients to round out the savoriness, including whole milk, half and half, all-purpose flour, salt, unsalted butter, and chili powder. “The half and half milk creates a really smooth and creamy sauce,” Olayinka explains, adding that “the milk provides creaminess while the half and half adds richness.” She also likes to add “a little bit of a kick,” and we can thank the chili powder for providing a subtly spicy profile.
