Obviously, this nacho cheese dip can be eaten with other foods beyond pretzels. I’m thinking tortilla chips, steamed veggies, popcorn chicken…
But with these Homemade Soft Pretzel Bites? So delicious!
What’s fun about this recipe is that you can make it as spicy or as mild as you like. In fact, our family made individual bowls of the cheese dip, then added as much hot sauce as we each prefered.
Easy Nacho Cheese Pretzel Dip
4 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk
hot sauce to taste (we like Cholula)
In a medium saucepan, slowly melt cream cheese and cheddar cheese cubes on medium low heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, gradually add milk and whisk together while continuing to heat. Once the sauce reaches the consistency you desire, remove from heat and serve – adding hot sauce to taste.
My boys were so impressed that I was able to make something that tasted so much like the canned fake cheese dip. But never fear – because this is made with real ingredients, it tastes much better than what comes out of a can.
Let’s take a vote: Who likes the cheese stuff that pours out of a can? Love it? Hate it? Don’t feel bad admitting that you like it. We all have our lingering non-food cravings (says the lady who still chooses Nacho Cheese Doritos when given the opportunity).
