Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar
  • 4.5 ounces green chiles chopped and drained
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk flour into butter until smooth. Allow to cook for a couple minutes until the flour becomes fragrant.
  • Pour milk into butter mixture and whisk to combine. Cook and stir until mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and add Cheddar cheese, green chiles, and seasoning. Stir until cheese is melted, about 1-3 minutes more.
  • Serve hot with chips or tacos.

Notes

  • Yields 2 cups
  • Highly recommend you grate your own cheddar versus buying pre-shredded. It just melts better.
  • You can use frozen/thawed, freshly roasted, or canned green chile
  • Make your own homemade taco seasoning for this recipe!
