Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk, or more as needed

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat; whisk flour into melted butter until smooth. Slowly pour milk into flour mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and stir in onion powder and garlic powder; simmer for 2 minutes. Add Monterey Jack cheese while stirring constantly until melted, about 5 more minutes.

Cook's Note:

Saute onion and garlic with butter instead of using powders, or add chiles, jalapenos, or tomatoes to taste.
