And now there's plenty of a great cheese sauce to go around; for chips, tater tots, veggies, or whatever your heart desires. If you don't have a microwave this can easily be prepared on a stove top; just heat all of the ingredients mixed together on low and stir constantly to prevent the cheese from burning.

And if you're a vegan, this can still be a great recipe. Just substitute for soy-milk and some vegan cheese.
