Southwestern Cheese Sauce

This warm, creamy Southwestern cheese sauce is perfect as a dip for chips or preztels. It’s also fantastic on hot dogs and hamburgers and anywhere else you need a cheese sauce, but with a nice kick! Next time you have a recipe that calls for that “other” cheese sauce, substitute this instead!

Southwestern Cheese Sauce

I use my homemade Cajun seasoning in this Southwestern cheese sauce. It’s very easy to make. Plus it has the added advantage that I can control the amount of salt. I always keep a big batch of it in the pantry because i used it in just about everything.
