Back in the day, we made nachos with shredded cheese. It got the job done, but once we started using this cheddar cheese sauce, we’ve never looked back!

Ingredients

NACHOS
3 cups tortilla chips
3 green onions (white and green parts), chopped
1 small tomato, seeded and chopped
1 cup Cheddar Cheese Sauce
 
CHEDDAR SAUCE
2 tablespoons butter
8 teaspoons cannabutter
3 tablespoons all-purpose  our
1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
1⁄2 teaspoon white pepper
1 cup (whole or 2 percent) milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 ounces cream cheese, slightly softened
1 1⁄2 cups freshly grated sharp cheddar
Pinch of ground nutmeg

Method

NACHOS
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Put the chips on a baking sheet and bake until light golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer the chips to a serving platter.
  4. Top with the green onions and tomato.
  5. Pour the cheese sauce over chips and serve immediately.
CHEDDAR CHEESE SAUCE
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and cannabutter over low heat. Whisk in the  our, salt, and white pepper and cook for several minutes, stirring, to remove the raw  our taste.
  2. Slowly pour in the milk and cream, stirring constantly; this ensures a smooth and creamy consistency. Once the milk and cream have been added, add the cream cheese in three or four pieces, whisking between each addition.
  3. Continue to cook the sauce over medium-low heat until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and add the cheddar a 1⁄2 cup at a time, whisking between each addition, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the nutmeg, and serve immediately.
