Nacho Good–A nacho cheese recipe made healthy!

So the other night as I was thinking what should we have for dinner I was reading my Food Network Magazine and this month they are featuring 50 plus different varieties of nachos!  They all look wonderful!  I wanted nachos and that was what I am making for dinner!


So make things a bit more healthier here is my recipe.  I didn’t tell my husband and he didn’t even say anything so that is HUGE!  He did eat his entire bowl of cheese.  I thought they were pretty tasty and as you notice from the recipe I wanted to put something healthy in them – yes, pureed pumpkin!



1 1/2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp flour

1 1/2 cups skim milk

salt and pepper

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/4 cup chicken stock

1/2 cup salsa



In a small pot, melt butter and combine with flour.  Stir in skim milk until thicken.  Add a dash of salt and pepper.  Once it has come to a boil and thicken, slowly add cheese until melted.  Next add pumpkin and chicken stock.  The chicken stock help to thin the consistency. I like my nacho cheese a bit spicy so I added salsa!
