Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, combine cheddar cheese and cornstarch. Toss until cheese is evenly coated.
  • Stir in evaporated milk and salt and pepper to taste (I like 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper). Heat over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally, until cheese is melted and smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover, and keep warm until serving time. Or, transfer to a slow cooker on the "warm" setting for serving.

Notes

One (4-ounce) can of diced green chiles, drained, can be added to the cheese sauce. Stir until heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes.
