Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce

Total Time

This is a revision of a recipe that I found on this site. The former recipe called six pounds of cheese so I broke the recipe down and added other ingredients for flavor. This makes enough for a family of four to six. Regular Velveeta makes a nice sauce for vegetables.

  1. Place all ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 30% power or defrost power for approximately 8 minutes, stopping every two to three minutes to stir. Serve with nacho chips or use over vegetables.

i tried this recipe, and it was way too thin. the only change i made was i used all milk and no cream. i ended up adding an extra 3/4 lb of velveta cheese and it was still way too thin. i added 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and still way too thin to be a dip. i ended up calling it quits on the dip and made a mac and cheese sauce. maybe the problem i had was because of the milk, but i would think that after adding that much cheese it would have been ok.

The flavor was pretty good even though I'm not a fan of Velveeta (I think this is the first time I've ever bought it or had it in my house). The consistency was a little thin, though, so I'm not going to use quite so much cream next time.
