Chipotle Cheese Sauce
Recipe type: Sauce
Serves: 1.3 cups
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 cups milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 chipotle pepper (in adobo sauce)
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¾ cup Extra sharp cheddar (or any stronger variety cheese you like)
  • Salt + Pepper (to taste)
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  1. Add butter to a sauce pan over a medium heat until melted.
  2. Add minced garlic as well as flour and whisk until butter crumbles appear.
  3. While whisking, slowly add milk until completely incorporated.
  4. Add chopped chipotle pepper, cilantro and seasonings. Allow to simmer about 1-2 minutes until thick and bubbling and then remove from heat.
  5. Stir in cheese and transfer to blender or food processor and pulse until blended.
  6. Serve over, in or under everything.
We like our cheese sauce pretty thick, but if you want a thinner sauce, just add more milk until desired consistency is reached.

After cooling, the sauce will thicken and may need to be heated in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds to be sauce-like again.
