This is a recipe for the white cheese sauce that comes with enchiladas at a mexican restaurant. Very GOOD!!


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low, and stir in shredded cheese until melted.
  3. Mix in sour cream and green chilies, and cook, stirring occasionally just until heated through. Do not allow to boil.

This recipe was a bit disappointing. The ingredients all separate and it is gritty textured, not at all creamy. It wasn't like anything that I had ever had in a mexican restaurant.

I loved this cheese sauce. I added flour and milk to the butter to thicken it up and served it along side chicken enchiladas. Delicious!

Was a big hit at my party! However, I wished that the consistency was creamier. I'm not sure how I can get it to truly be like the consistency you would get at a Mexican restaurant. Any tips?
