10 minute Nacho cheese sauce

There is something so addictive about Nacho cheese sauce that I keep going for more and just cannot stop.  I have bought tons of cheese sauce jars in the past but not anymore! I tried making cheese sauce at home and it turned out absolutely perfect.

As promised in my last post in which I shared recipe of Ultimate Restaurant style salsa, I am sharing recipe of this 10 minute Easy Nacho cheese sauce which is rich, tangy, cheesy and so so good  you guys!

Made with just 6 ingredients, this sauce will become your favourite to make over the weekend or when guests visit. Adding a pinch of taco seasoning makes this sauce even more delicious but don't freight if you can't find it. Its an amazing Mexican dip and kids are going to absolutely love it!

You are gonna wanna eat this sauce with everything- nachos, potato chips, wedges, fries. Sure it's nacho cheese sauce and its best eaten with nachos but it can be also served as a fondue with crudites like blanched broccoli, baby-born, carrots, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and toasted croutons.

This cheese sauce with nacho chips will be perfect for Mexican night and will go really well with Mexican black bean tacos, Spicy Potato tacos with Mango salsa and Mango chilli lemonade.

You can make this cheese sauce cheesier or spicier according to your liking and even add it over enchilladas, burritos. It will refrigerate well in an air-tight container for 2 days.

Quick, easy and cheesy Nacho cheese sauce which is perfect for serving with nachos, tacos, burritos and potato wedges

Type: Appetiser
Diet: Vegetarian
Serving: Make about 1 cup


1 tsp butter
1 tsp plain flour
1 cup milk (room temperature)
1/2 cup grated cheese (I used Amul cheese)
pinch of turmeric
pinch of taco seasoning (optional)


Start by melting butter in a saucepan. Add flour and stir continuously using a whisk.

When the roux (Flour+butter) slightly changes colour , slowly add in milk and keep whisking continuously.

Keep whisking until all the roux is combined in milk.

Next, season with salt and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

Now add cheese, turmeric and taco seasoning and stir everything together again with whisk.

Once all the cheese has melted, taste and adjust flavours. (You can add more cheese or swipe taco seasoning with mixed herbs,chilli flakes, black pepper etc.)

Serve with nacho chips, potato wedges, raw vegetables or roasted vegetables. This sauce can also be used to make Loaded Mexican nachos.
