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!
