Skip the nasty store-bought slop with a list of ingedients that sound like they belong in a chemistry lab rather than on your nachos. Instead, make this quick, easy, and super-tasty fresh salsa con queso the next time you have a salty, cheesy, nacho craving (note: this recipe is a variation of one I found here).

  • sauce pan
  • stove


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded nacho cheese blend
