Ingredients for dirty cheese sauce

  • 400 ml bechamel sauce

  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp sweet chilli sauce

  1. First, warm the bechamel sauce up on low heat. After that add the cheese slowly over a couple of minutes and stir until dissolved. Roughly 5 minutes.
  2. Now add the rest of the ingredients. Mix for another 5 minutes until you have a consistent sauce.

All done. This can be your guilty pleasure. You can mess around with the various types of cheese and have your fun with it.

We used this sauce as a side dip for nachos, and to top our enchiladas. This can also be the sauce used for the macaroni and cheese.
