Ingredients
Taco Meat
Sriracha Cheese Sauce
Instructions
  1. For the taco meat, spray a medium skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add onions, and saute for 3 minutes. Add beef and seasoning, and brown and crumble meat until cooked through. Drain very well.
  2. For the cheese sauce, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add butter, and whisk in flour as soon as the butter is melted, stirring until a smooth paste forms.
  3. Very slowly stir in cold milk, about 1/4 c. at a time, whisking constantly to keep mixture smooth. If you see a few tiny lumps, don’t worry about it. Break up any lumps larger than a pea with the whisk or the back of a fork before adding more liquid.
  4. Once all the milk is added and you have a smooth mixture, whisk in chicken broth and spices. Bring to a simmer, whisking frequently, and simmer until bubbly and thickened. Turn heat to medium-low, and stir in cheese. Stir continuously until cheese is melted, which will only take about a minute.
  5. Fill a bowl or plate with an even layer of tortilla chips, pile on some taco meat, drizzle cheese sauce over that, and top with extras like guacamole and salsa. Dig in!
