Easy Cheese Sauce with a Kick

Makes 1 cup of wonderfully creamy, zippy, sauce.

2 Tbl olive oil
3 Tbl flour
Heat olive oil in a fry pan at med-hi; then add flour and use spatula to mix; then reduce heat to medium and cook for about 2-3 minutes.

1 c chicken brothMeanwhile, heat 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth (we like Swanson Natural Goodness) in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Add chicken broth to skillet, and whisk for about 1-2 minutes to mix with the flour/oil roux. (the sauce will be thick)

3 shakes tabasco
Add 3 big shakes from a Tabasco bottle; then freshly ground white or black pepper to taste.

cheddar cheeseSlice ~ 1 oz (extra sharp) cheddar cheese, and lay on top of sauce. Stir until cheese is incorporated into sauce.

ENJOYWe like this with cauliflower - use ~1/4 cup sauce per person.

Our son loves it with pasta - use ~1/3 cup per person.
