Step 1: in a Pan Add a Small Amount Butter Followed by Two Table Spoons of Plain Flour.

Combine the butter and flour.

Cook for 2 minutes, this is to stop the sauce from tasting like flour.

Step 2: Next Add 1 Cup of Milk.

Heat until the milk starts to simmer and thicken.

For a little extra flavour add half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

Season with salt.

Step 3: Now Turn Off the Heat and Add 1 Cup of Grated Cheddar Cheese.

We’re going to add 2 cups in total but not all at once because it will drop the temp to quickly and the cheese won’t have a chance to melt.

Add another ½ of cheddar cheese.

Once melted into the sauce add a final half a cup.

Mix through until the sauce is fully combined.

Step 4: This Cheese Sauce Is Looking Perfect! It's Smooth But Holds Together Beautifully.

Step 5: All That’s Left to Do Is Serve It Up.

This sauce is perfect as a dip, served up with same salsa.
