Pieday Friday – Spicy nacho cheese sauce

| 0 comments

One of my favourite foodie treat is nachos. I think it’s the ‘sharing’ nature of nachos that pleases me so much when I see it on a menu. It means that the plate will be massive and I’ll get to enjoy an extra cheesey nacho treat alongside my own meal. Found on many pub menus these days, it’s a dish that I look forward to whenever I go out for dinner and it’s something I’ve tried to recreate many times on Saturday nights at home. It’s a dish that works with any combination of toppings; chilli beans, guacamole, salsa and hummus. But my favourite topping of all is nacho cheese and that’s the recipe I’ve tried to recreate today with the help of a tube of Primula…pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-7 pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-6pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-10Ingredients: 75g butter, 75g plain flour, milk, a whole tube of Original Primula cheese and approx. 3 teaspoons of cayenne pepper or chilli powder (depending on taste and how spicy you like it!)

  1. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat.
  2. Quickly stir in the flour to make a paste.
  3. Add a splash of milk and stir quickly to mix into the paste.pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_ pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-2 pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-3
  4. Keep adding a little milk at a time until you have a smooth sauce.
  5. Squeeze in a whole tube of Primula Original cheese, or Primula Light if you prefer.
  6. Sprinkle in cayenne pepper and/or chilli a little at a time to taste.
  7. Pour over crisp nacho chips or use as a dip in a separate pot.pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-4 pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-5 pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-6 pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-17

It’s such simple recipe and really quick to make, thanks to the speed of stirring needed in order to make the sauce smooth and creamy. The Primula cheese makes the sauce lovely and creamy as well as really cheesy – so much so that you don’t need to add any extra grated cheese. And if you leave out the chilli or cayenne, it’s the ideal cheese sauce for cauliflower cheese or macaroni cheese so it’s well worth whipping up a huge batch, yum!pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-12pieday friday primula spicy nacho cheese sauce recipe_-8Let me know if you have a go at making this recipe and leave me a comment if you have any ideas of different ways to flavour the cheese sauce – perhaps a cheese ‘n’ chive sauce would be good for cauliflower cheese? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated so please do get in touch and let me know your favourite way to eat cheese sauce!
