How To Make Cheesy Sauce For Fries, Chicken Wings, And Nachos

This super creamy sauce will make anything more appetizing!

Whether you have chips, fried chicken, or fries, a cheese sauce can make it extra special and delicious. You don’t have to do anything fancier than melt cheese and drizzle it on!

However, there is a trick to make it super creamy and not clump up too much that it’s too thick on your tongue to be pleasant. You need to melt the cheese with a little milk or even make a real sauce to make it perfectly silky!  

Here are the ingredients you need to make this super easy cheese sauce: 

  • • 1 tablespoon butter
  • • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • • 1 (154-ml) can evaporated milk
  • • 1 cup cheddar cheese or any quick-melting cheese, grated 

Once you have these ingredients, here’s how to turn them into the cheese sauce: 

  • 1 Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add flour; mix well. Add evaporated milk; whisk until well incorporated.
  • 2 Add grated cheese. Mix well until cheese is melted and mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Season with ground pepper if desired. Use immediately.

This cheese sauce is ready to serve with chicken wings, fries, and nacho corn chips as a dipping sauce. You can also drizzle this straight onto a plate of fries and nachos so you can create a fabulous and appetizing loaded plate.
