With yesterday being Cinco de Mayo we had a big Mexican feast for dinner. I forgot to buy any cheese sauce for the Nachos so I used the recipe below as a base for my own Nacho Cheese sauce. I added about 2 tbsp. of taco seasoning and 1 cup of salsa and we had a delicious cheese sauce to enjoy with our dinner!
When I was at the grocery store, they had some beautiful cauliflower. I couldn’t help myself, I had to buy one for Chris and I for dinner. It of course needed cheese sauce!
I started out with milk, flour, salt, margarine, parmesan and grated cheese, of course.
I melted the margarine in my microwave, in my large measuring cup then added the flour and salt and mixed it into a paste.
The milk was next. I whisked it until smooth.
I microwaved this for 3 minutes on high heat, in one minute increments until it started to thicken.
I added the grated cheese and the parmesan and mixed it up.
Then I microwaved it again on high heat for one more minute, until the cheese melted and it was smooth.
Now all I had to do was pour it over the prepared cauliflower!
Note: Because I had lots left over, I’m thinking about adding some taco seasoning and salsa and making some nacho cheese for a snack!
