  1. Prepare french fries as directed on the package.
  2. Stir cornstarch and water in a small cup until cornstarch dissolves; set aside. Bring milk and margarine to a boil in a saucepan, stirring constantly.

Add the cheese to the milk mixture and stir until the cheese has melted and is well combined.
