"This is a very easy cheese sauce that gets my family to eat their vegetables. If you've always wondered how to make melted cheese pourable, this is the recipe you've been looking for. Longhorn cheese is melted and combined with milk, cornstarch, spices and yellow food coloring for a sauce you can serve with most anything."

I thought this recipe was going to be runny like the people had mentioned above but it's not. You have to let it boil first and then it will thicken. I only added 2 cups of milk because of what ...

Followed the recipe (and I do cook quite a bit) EXACTLY. Inedible. A waste of milk and cheese.
