Quick, easy, and oh so tasty, chipotle four cheese sauce! Perfect for dipping pizza in. Because, who doesn’t love cheese?
Cheese, on top of cheese, on top of cheese. Ok, for real you guys! I love cheese. As cheesy as it sounds (every pun intended), cheese is my jam!
My favorite thing about cheese is how versatile it is. It can go in eggs at breakfast, with noodles for lunch, and can even be used as a dip. And of course, it can be on cheese. Like a delicious cheesy pizza!
And who doesn’t love pizza? I just grabbed a frozen pizza and stuck it in the freezer to enjoy on weekends, game day, or any day. Honestly, I am not seeing a down side here.
Anyway, last weekend I was out of town. And my kids went to their grandparents. Unfortunately, the grandparents do not have TV, and so my sweet 10 year old son, who absolutely lives and breathes sports, had to listen to his favorite football team play (on the radio), instead of watch them. He was devastated.
In order to make it up to him, I am planning a huge tailgating party for the next game. And you better believe there is going to be some pizza and extra cheese involved. In fact, I have big cheese filled plans. And those involve a pourable chipotle four cheese sauce that can be made in about 15 minutes, and can be made in advance! Combine that with Pizza and a few other snacks, and you have a fun, easy meal, and the ultimate football viewing dining experience as it takes only minutes, and you don’t have to miss any plays or downs.
You guys, I am dipping pizza in cheese. I am not sure if this should be criminal, or hailed as genius. Either way, I am not going to stop. And you shouldn’t either.
You guys…cheese and pizza! I mean, c’mon. There is a reason I watch football, and let’s just say it has nothing to do with the pigskin.
Tailgating is all about the food for me! And Freschetta Pizzas make it easier. Freschetta pizzas are not your typical frozen pizza. It is all in the details, and starts with a crust that is made like fresh baked bread with only natural yeast and no chemical leaveners, then topped with the most premium ingredients including sauce made from real tomatoes, 100% real cheese and the highest quality meats. This combination delivers a superior taste and tons of convenience.
The cheese sauce was inspired by a sauce made by Nagi on Recipe Tin Eats. All of her stuff is amazing, and so I thought I would give it a try, but change the flavor profile a little. I love feta and chipotle together, and knew a nice sharp white cheddar would be the perfect balance. It turned out exactly like I imagined it. Creamy, with some sharp flavors, but ultimately something even my kids enjoy!
Chipotle Four Cheese Sauce
- 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 1/2 cup sharp white cheddar
- 1 Tbs corn starch
- 12 ounces evaporated milk
- 1 Tbs heaping chopped jalapeno (optional)
- 1 tsp chipotle hot sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Grate your cheeses, and mix them together with the corn starch. If you use a pre-grated cheese, reduce cornstarch fractionally. Most pre-grated cheeses have some cornstarch on them already to keep the shreds from clumping.
- Put cheese and cornstarch mix, evaporated milk, chopped jalapeno, chipotle in a pot, and heat over medium heat. Use a whisk, and stir/whisk, while heating the cheese mixture, it will slowly get lose, and stop clumping, and eventually, it will be pourable. It takes about 10 minutes of stir time.
- Taste, add salt, and adjust to your preference, adding more chipotle if you want a stronger flavor.
- Remove from heat, and pour into a bowl for dipping!
If making ahead of time, just reheat before serving.
