Confession time.

When I was a kid I LOVED Easy Cheese. That cheese “stuff” found in a can that you can squirt in fun patterns onto crackers. You know…. this stuff.

And yes… I have squirted it directly in my mouth on more than one occasion. Come on. Fess up. YOU have too! ;)

Even though I refuse to buy it now I still enjoy they idea of an “easy” cheese. Hubby and I love to share an order of nachos when we go out now and then. And sometimes I find, plain veggies just aren’t enough. I want to DIP them in something.

So I set out to make myself a single-serve dip-able Nacho cheese for those nights I just want, well, something cheesy!

Honestly, the result was better then I ever expected! I started with two of my new favorite Laughing Cow products…

and ended with this silky cheese sauce…

Silky Single-Serve Nacho CheeseHere’s how I did it.

Note: You could totally use any flavor cheese you like but this combo really duplicated that yummy generic yelllow cheese you get on an order of nachos.

Oh! and I went a little picture happy again. Sometime I just get into it. :)

Remove the wrapper and wax from the Mini Babybel Round.

Place it in the bottom of a coffee mug or small glass bowl.

Melt the cheese in the microwave for about 15 seconds.

Add the wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle.

Mix the two cheeses together with a fork. It’s going to look a little stringing and, well, gross.

Don’t worry about it. Pop it back into the microwave for 10 seconds and stir again.

You’re done! Start dipping!

I transfered mine to a new bowl for our photo shoot and then enjoyed dipping way! A few of my favorites include pepper strips, sugar snap peas,
