We’re gearing up for football this Saturday night!  Of course, no game would be complete without a beer and some yummy eats.  Tonight we’re munching on some nachos drizzled with the EASIEST from scratch white cheddar cheese sauce.  The sauce is definitely the star of this dish, and even my ‘no meal is complete without meat‘ touting husband gave it a big thumbs up!

Do you love the neon orange cheese sauce typically served with nachos?  No hard feelings, but I challenge you to skip the convenience food aisle at the grocery store or the drive thru window and make this sauce instead!!!  It takes only minutes to chop the onions, shred the cheese and whip together this sauce on the stove top.  Enjoy! 🙂
