Guy Fieri’s Super Melty Cheese: the Sauce That Every Nacho Chip Needs

People don’t always make nacho cheese from scratch. However, if you are prepared to be one of the brave, you definitely want to use the recipe of Guy Fieri. He understands that one of the things that people love about nachos is the creamy cheese – and that’s why he’s come up with a recipe that involves creamy, and shall we also say super melty, cheese.

Guy Fieri Knows the Secret

This cheese dip takes nachos to the next level. It’s made with real ingredients and is way more flavorful than what you may be used to. Guy suggests that when you make the super melty cheese dip, you don’t have to rush it. A little roux with some butter and flour, as well as a bit of milk, and voila – you have an excellent base. Start stirring the shredded or crumbled cheese slowly at a low-to-medium temperature. A little provolone, gouda, a little cheddar, a little parm – it’s a mix that you have to keep warm in a double boiler.

The Sky’s the Limit

With that, you set out to make your own super melty cheese dip, which, as you will discover, tastes fantastic on everything. You can dip chips in it, straight from the pot, if you want. Add roasted tomatoes, green chiles, jalapenos, or cilantro, and there you have it – spicier queso. Drench your broccoli to make it less “vegetable-y.” You can also dip fries in it when you’re feeling crazy, or even better – toss cooked elbows or shells in it and serve it as a mac and cheese. 

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 ounces parmesan cheese, grated
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 ounces smoked gouda cheese, grated

The bottom line is – the recipe can be changed, depending on your purpose. You can use the cheeses of your choice too.
