I love nachos! It am a bit of a cheese addict I must admit. But us real foodies love to read our labels don’t we? That means no more cheese sauce out of a can 🙂
Real Food Nacho Cheese Sauce
1/2 cup yogurt cheese
1 cup raw cheddar cheese, cubed
1 1/2 cups raw whole milk
splash of hot sauce
1 jalapeno peppers seeded and chopped
half of a small red bell pepper, diced
1/4 raw whole milk
2 Tbsp flour
In saucepan melt cheddar and yogurt cheese. Add hot sauce, peppers and half of the milk (3/4 cup) Stir until incorporated well. Add remaining milk and stir.
Mix 1/4 cup of milk and flour, whisk to remove lumps. Add this to your cheese mixture and boil gently until thick.
Now if you really want to impress someone you can make your own tortilla chips in a hurry. I take the leftover homemade tortillas that are a little on the stale side and cut them into triangles. Fry them in a cast iron skillet in really hot oil. It doesn’t take long, maybe 2-3 minutes. I use beef tallow and they are so delicious. I love me some beef fat! 🙂
This recipe freezes and reheats very well. If you want to make a large batch, go ahead! Stores in the fridge for 1 week, or in the freezer for 3-6 months.
