VIV'S CHEESY NACHO DIP
If your guilty pleasure is the slightly scary cheesy nacho dip you get at the cinema, we have a more wholesome Irish version recipe that uses only three ingredients - milk/cream, cheddar cheese and a wee bit of our pure potato starch!
Great for parties, BBQs and movie nights!
This recipe is brought to us by Viv of @vivs_home_cooking - a true champion of Irish ingredients and a dedicated foodie whose passion for cooking for her family is matched only by her passion for teaching her children to cook as well!
200ml half and half ( milk and cream)
1 tspoon of starch @meade_farm
150g red cheddar cheese ( preferably block cheese as ready shredded cheese has cornstarch on it and can mess with texture)
Whisk together half and half and the starch until smooth.
Bring to a light boil over medium-high heat stirring constantly.
Reduce heat and simmer 30 seconds, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
Immediately stir in cheese and return to low heat and stir to fully melt the cheese.
Serve warm with tortilla chips for dipping.
Note that the sauce will not reheat well so scale as needed.
