Does anyone need a wonderful healthy snack recipe for a homemade nacho sauce? It’s great for snacking on, especially when you watch the ball games, which I know is very popular with seniors and elderly. So this would make a really good snack. Leftovers refrigerate well too (if even there are any!) You can always use the whole grain chips to dip in it.
Cut veggies are also good to dip in. I like to get the veggies in the bag that are already pre cut, like broccoli and cauliflower and baby carrot sticks. They also have bags of stir fry veggies that are all cut, with more variety, and I have used some of those as well. Plus, you can pour this nacho sauce over rice too, for a side dish – it’s fabulous.
This will serve about 4 people. It does take a little time to prepare, but is worth it! If you’re a creative cook, you may have some other ingredients in mind to add in too. Some people like to make theirs very spicy and have ingredients that they like to put in.
Here’s what you should have…
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon – Small amount of garlic, or chopped garlic, according to your taste
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 red or green pepper, chopped
2 chopped tomatoes
2 cups grated cheese
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
12 oz beer, warmed to room temperature
1 tsp honey
Saute the onion and garlic with salt and spices, in oil for about 10 minutes. Add in the chopped pepper and tomatoes. Sprinkle in the flour, mixing in. Stir and cook 5 to 8 minutes. Add in the beer. Turn the heat way down to Low, cover, and simmer about 1 hour. Stir about every 15 minutes or so. Add in the honey and mix well. Let it warm into the mix.
Remove it from heat. Uncover. Let it stand 45 minutes. Then serve!
