Nacho Cheese

6 May

I have a great dislike for Velveeta. It has its place in the universe, just not in my kitchen. “But what about Nacho Cheese,” you ask? Behold, the answer. A very tasty one at that!

Two versions – one for the wimpy-s out there like me 🙂 and one for those who like a bit more kick. Easy as pie…except it’s cheese.
