Sriracha Cheese Sauce

Sriracha Cheese Sauce: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This cheese sauce has many uses. You could use it as a dip like I did, but you could also use it on nachos or tacos. You could even use it on a baked potato. With so many uses why not make this spicy and delicious cheese sauce.

Sriracha Cheese Sauce
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

Directions:
In a medium pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted whisk in the flour and continue to whisk for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture has a light brown color to it and has formed a smooth paste.

Very slowly pour in the milk while whisking constantly. Once all of the milk has been whisked in and the mixture is smooth, whisk in the chicken broth, sriracha and chili powder. Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking very often and simmer until the mixture has thickened.

Turn the heat down to medium low and stir in the cheese. Continue to stir constantly until the cheese is completely melted and sauce is smooth. If the mixture has become too thick stir in a little bit more milk.

Enjoy!!!
