Dreamy Cheese Sauce

This is definitely one of my signature recipes and for good reason. It is a healthy and easy to make sauce that is super versatile. I use it for a delightful Mac&Cheese, as a dip sauce, sauce in or over burritos, over open sandwiches, anywhere and everywhere I can think of. The sauce’s signature status was also confirmed when my 10 year old son claimed it was better than ketchup! It’s that good lol. The recipe is below.
