Beef Nachos with Cheese Sauce

Making beef nachos with rich and delicious cheese sauce at home has never been easier. It only takes less than 30 minutes. The cheese sauce is way better than its store-bought counterpart. The beef seasoning is also legit and flavorful.

Start by cooking the ground beef. It is best to use lean beef for this recipe. Simple heat oil and add the beef in a pan. Cook while stirring until it turns medium brown.

Note that fats will render and water will come out from the meat while cooking. Once this happens, just continue cooking until the liquid evaporates. Discard the fat afterwards.

Put all the seasonings all together. You will see the list in the recipe below. I usually cook this for a couple of minutes once seasoned.

The next step is making the homemade cheese sauce. It is also simple. Imaging making a roux for baked macaroni or lasagna. Melt butter and then add flour. Constantly stir until it browns a bit. Add milk afterwards and stir until smooth. The cheese is added last. Let it melt and stir until you achieve your desired consistency.
