Homemade Spicy Cheese Sauce
1/4 cup enchilada sauce
1 tsp Aleppo (or other ground pepper)
1/4 tsp cayenne (more or less depending on spicy level)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp Chile lime seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s (optional)
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1. Bring 1½ cups of the milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat (whatever you do, don’t turn your back on it, as me how I know - lol). Whisk the cornstarch, spices, and ¼ Cup of enchilada sauce together once combined, whisk into the simmering milk. Continue to cook, whisking often, until the sauce has thickened, about 2 minutes.
2. Off the heat, stir in the cheeses until all the cheese is melted and smooth. Season with salt to taste.
This would be great on Nachos, Tacos, Broccoli, Steamed Cauliflower, Crackers, Chips, French Fries, or just by the spoonful.
P.S. This recipe is so easy to make and customize to your taste & spice levels.
P.S.S. This makes a little over a pint of sauce.
TO MAKE AHEAD
The sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat the sauce over low heat, whisking to recombine.
3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Granola
This granola is so easy to make. Just old fashioned oats, all-natural peanut butter, and honey. It's great as a cereal, for a snack on a hike, or for any time you want a snack that is healthy and delicious. Plus - it's easy to change it up for your tastes. Don't like Peanut Butter? Use a different kind of nut or seed butter. Want a little chocolate kick, add chocolate chips when you take it out of the oven to cool (don't stir until cooled or you will have chocolate streaks instead of chocolate chips - lol).
5 cups old-fashioned oats - not quick cooking oats
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup peanut butter chunky or smooth - all natural
1 tbsp vanilla extract (optional)
Optional Add In's to Your Granola
