  • 2 Ounces Cream cheese
  • Cup Heavy cream plus an additional 3 tablespoons
  • 1 Cup Freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder


  • Add all ingredients in a small bowl (except 3 tablespoons of the heavy cream). Leave out the chili powder and cumin if you want a plain cheese sauce.
  • Microwave on high for 30 seconds.
  • Once that is done. Stir and microwave on high for another 30 seconds.
  • Cheese should be smooth.
  • Stir in 3 additional tablespoons of heavy cream to make sauce smooth and creamy.
  • Serve.


  • Re-Heating: If this gets cold, be careful re-heating.  Reheat very slowly...like 15 seconds at a time.  Too much stirring and too much heat will cause it to split.  it really cannot be saved after it splits.  
  • Storing: This should keep in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
  • Cheese: I am a fan of pre-shredded cheese you may have a better result when you grate the cheese yourself for this recipe.
