Nacho Cheese Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chani Goldstein

This is a cheesy dip that is great over nachos. I put it in a fondue pot for a build your own nachos party. Big doesn't use Velveeta for those that aren't fans. It is also a great base for mac and cheese.

Turned out perfectly, tasted great. To the people who complained of graininess/grittiness, that usually happens when you use lowfat dairy. It has nothing to do with the amount of flour in the recipe. I made a half batch of this with part whole milk and part heavy cream, omitting the onion because I hate chopping them, and everyone loved it.
