Today is another Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day! In the secret recipe club, each participating blogger is assigned a blog from another participating blogger and secretly searches their site for something to recreate. The accompanying blog post then goes live on reveal day! So while I was immersed in my assigned blog, someone else was picking through mine! I’m so excited to be part of this group, to see what on my blog peaks other’s interests and to stumble upon new blogs and new recipes.
This month I was assigned the blog Burnt Apple. In her about me section, Burnt Apple admits to being a not-so-great cook, but after having kids she turned it around and you can see her success on her site. Her husband has diabetes so her page is full of healthier meals. Not that I picked one… there were just too many cinnamony desserts to pick from! Like cinnamon pie – WHAT?! And churros – but hey, they’re baked and not fried. And then there were apple cinnamon quinoa cookies – quinoa’s good for you, right?
I decided to go in a savory direction. But still, not exactly a healthy one. We’re talking nacho cheese sauce people! I enjoy this guilty pleasure at sporting events and the bowling alley. Add it to your March Madness party for a dip everyone will enjoy!
I doubled the recipe and needed to use whole milk in addition to the evaporated milk. I found I needed to add a little extra splash of milk to the nacho cheese sauce to get my desired texture.
Nacho Cheese Sauce
- 8 oz mild cheddar cheese, cubed
- 8 oz pepper jack cheese, cubed
- 1 can (12oz) evaporated milk
- 1/2 C whole milk
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Melt over medium heat until sauce is smooth, bubbly, and thick.
- Serve over chip with pickled jalapenos, if desired.
