Notes: This is a great dipping sauce for nachos, veggies, all sorts of things! You can add it on a sandwich, you can put it over noodles. It is a very versatile sauce. You can add some white wine and use it as a fondue also! I love cheese so much, and this is nice and simple to make. It is one pot, so easy clean up, and people are either really impressed, or think it tastes so good you must have bought it at a store. You can add spice if you like, or even switch up the cheeses! Enjoy!
