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.

Holy Cow!!! This was awesome!! My kids loved it too! This was a great base to a awesome cheese sauce. I added some salt, garlic powder, cumin, and a touch of cayenne. Then also added some chopped jalepenos, as well as some of the jalepeno juice and it was AWESOME! I used this to make loaded nachos. With taco meat, then the cheese sauce, fresh onion, and some avacado! Thank you for posting such a great recipe!

So yummy! Its a good base as said by others, I added some salt and pepper some red pepper flakes for some spice, garlic powder and salsa to it and it pretty much tastes like the tostitos nacho dip from the store. I will definitely make it again and for entertaining in the future.

Great sauce! I added jalapeno, and used tapioca flour/starch for a gluten free version. Very thick and creamy! My milk was 1% and it wasn't gritty at all, very smooth, and silky.

I made this for my husbands nachos & he was very disappointed. It was very gritty and I followed the instructions to a T.

This was okay. I made a mental note not to add as much flour as another reviewer said it was gritty, but then I forgot. So, it was a little gritty. I used half mild cheddar, half sharp as I did not know which was intended. I didn't think it was cheesy enough, so maybe I should have used 1 lb. of sharp. I also added a jalepeno and a can of green chiles. I would up it to atleast two jalepenos next time. And reduce the flour. Overall, not too bad.

Great base for customizing! I think I've settled on finding the best/easiest way for me being to skip the onion, just do the remaining ingredients. But adding a couple big spoonfuls of salsa at the end--just delicious. Used it tonight to dip warm, homemade pretzels into and it was awesome comfort food. Thanks for a great non-Velveeta option!

Wonderful nacho sauce. I added a 7 oz. can of diced green chilies, about 2/3 c. thick and chunky medium salsa, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder; found the consistency to be just right as is. Thank you so much for a basic recipe with NO Velvita!
