More About This Recipe
The easy, creamy cheese sauce in this recipe gets its kick from spicy Asian chili sauce.
Here, I used sambal, a traditional combination of fiery chilies and garlic, but you could also use smooth sriracha—also known as “rooster sauce, “ because of the rooster image commonly found in its green-capped bottle.
Essentially, this is a fun take on ballpark nachos. In place of the traditional tortilla chips, I used homemade crispy sweet potato chips with smoked sea salt. The sweetness of the potatoes, combined with the smokiness of the salt and the spiciness of the dip is just perfect and satisfies a variety of cravings. Feel free to substitute any kind of chip you like—homemade or store-bought. Tortilla chips, pita chips or even regular potato chips still make this an amazing party snack.
The cheese sauce is also fantastic as a spicy base for macaroni and cheese, or drizzled warm over cooked vegetables, like Brussels sprouts, broccoli or even asparagus!
