10 Minute Nacho Cheese


This recipe is not for a fancy cheese dip which includes gourmet cheeses and special ingredients. There are a thousand recipes for that. This particular recipe is for that fake tasting NACHO CHEESE that we all love. The cheese that we get poured over chips at a ballgame or at the movies. I repeat…this is NACHO CHEESE… as clearly mentioned in the name of the recipe. I am a nacho connoisseur and i take offense when people confuse nacho cheese with cheese sauce or simple melted cheese. Anyways, I made this cheese, and it gets my stamp of approval as homemade nacho cheese- ESPECIALLY since you can’t get nacho cheese tasting nacho cheese from the grocery store- only Costco. Not even velveeta tastes like it. Get to know your nacho cheese, and you;ll understand what i’m talking about- Chef Boyar-G

I have been looking for a good cheese sauce for a long time and I have finally found it. This sauce was so good served over broccoli. The whole family loved it



This is one of the best nacho cheeses i’ve ever had! A bit of mustard gives more zing and colouring the cheese is fun

DELICIOUS. I have been looking for a nacho cheese recipe similar to Velveeta, because here in Australia they eat nachos only with grated cheese, and this recipe is perfect. Love it!

This is wonderful! I needed a cheese sauce for a recipe. It deosn’t need the salt. I love mixing it with rice and brocoli then baking it.
I love this as a dip too! White American cheese and pimentos is heavenly.
