  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium to low heat.
  • Add the flour and whisk until it turns light golden.
  • Add the turmeric and the English mustard. Whisk.
  • Add the milk slowly, in 5 batches while continuously whisking, until the béchamel sauce thickens (you can also add a little more milk if you just want a thinner and smoother cheddar sauce). You will know it is ready when bubbles start to form on the surface.
  • Add the grated cheddar in 5 batches, while stirring continuously and again waiting for each addition to be completely incorporated into the mixture before adding the next.
  • Season to taste. It will depend on how salty or mild the cheese is.
  • If you would like a little stronger color, add a little ground turmeric.
  • Keep the mixture warm until serving.
  • To prepare this dish, place the tortilla chips on a plate, pour the cheddar sauce on top and garnish with tomato, parsley, and onion.


If the sauce cools and becomes too thick, you can reheat it and add a little milk to make it thinner!
