    This was beautiful!
    But only, when I added the one cup of milk, it still was very thick so I had to add more. Overall, it was the best by far and the easiest. Thanks!

    Great recipe. If I make it for my fam, I'll have to take out the pepper though (they have acid reflux that's very sensitive), but I love me some spicy cheese! Can't wait for hotdog night! Thank you for making it simple!

    I know you said you added whole milk, but is it okay to use other types of milk?? It's just that we only buy in the semi-skimmed milk (& I always prefer this kind). It won't ruin the recipe if I use semi-skimmed instead, will it?? Just curious to know... 😅

    Simple solution. Grab a sandwich cheese, put it on a bowl of nachos, and put it in the microwave for the cheese to melt. No need to thank me :v

    I tried this recipe exactly how you said to do it and both times it was too chunky. It was not the smooth and creamy sauce as seen in the video. I exacted the flour and all the other ingredients. Pretty disappointed

      Joseph InChrist What she is making with butter and flour is what we call a roux. In most cases we use unsalted butter because we like to control the amount of salt that goes into the dish. However, salt also cause the gluten in the flour to toughen up which may explain the clumpiness. Try using equal parts flour and unsalted butter. Making sure the flour is cook slowly and throughly.

      Kien Lam I am not sure what kind of butter it was. Does that make a difference?

      Craig I tried it twice. The first time it was too thick and pasty. The second time was a little better. I did asd more butter, but the end result was still a little too thick and the flour was still slightly clumpy in the end result

    2 tablespoons of flower made mine very thick! Should I maybe use 1.5 next time? Or maybe I didn't use enough milk? ( Measured flower not milk )

    Hi, great recipe! I was wondering, how i could preserve this. could you put the cheese sause into plastic tubs and freeze them and then melt them in the microwave for future use? if so what way would you go about it? I'll subscribe, thanks.
