Creamy Sriracha Nacho Cheese Sauce
Directions
7 STEPS
1
In a saucepan, heat vegetable oil and unsalted butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
2
Add all-purpose flour and cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute to cook off the raw flour taste.
3
Gradually whisk in 1 cup of whole milk, ensuring there are no lumps. Stir in salt, smoked paprika, English mustard, and Sriracha sauce.
4
Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking continuously. Once simmering, lower the heat and cook for another minute.
5
Remove the saucepan from heat and gradually add the sharp cheddar cheese, whisking until the cheese has completely melted.
6
If needed, adjust the consistency by whisking in the remaining 1/2 cup of warm milk. If the cheese is not melting properly, return the saucepan to low heat for a few seconds while stirring.
7
Serve the nacho cheese sauce immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently before serving, stirring to maintain smoothness.
