My absolute new FAVORITE SNACK!!!

I was looking for a cheese sauce recipe in our recipe room and found a recipe that I modified for myself....so flexible you can do anything to it....It's so easy I'm almost embarrassed to post it

I took 1/4 cup of hwc and put it in a small pot on the stove. To that, you take 4 to 5 pieces of the Kraft Deli Deluxe slices and break them into small pieces and let them dissolve in the hwc. The original recipe called for 1/2 and 1/2 but I don't use that. Anyway, I added a big tbl. of salsa to that and some cracked black pepper and it made somewhat of a nacho sauce. Dipped my hazelnut crackers into. I was in heaven.

I'm going to make a double batch today and put some fire roasted diced green chiles in it and some cayenne pepper and another tbl. of salsa.

While eating it I asked myself if this would do the trick if people around me were eating nachos or even just fritos and salsa....and the answer was yes! I would have liked this even more!!!!

There is no thickener required and after being in the refrigerator overnight and nuked the next day it was really thick and even better

You will not be disappointed and I look forward to hearing about YOUR variations!!

Holy cow! Did you use sharp cheddar? We've never used sliced cheese, but I just looked it up and was amazed to see '0' carbs!

What a great LC snack idea!!!

Don't be fooled by the zero. Each slice is just under 1g carbs, so 5 slices would count at around 4 - 4.5g.

Beth you have never taken a slice of American deluxe cheese and made crackers.
Take a slice of cheese and cut into 16 pieces microwave until melted, let cool , eat. YUM!!

I make taco shells and salad shells along these same lines.

I always count each slice of cheese as 1 carb! Even still..I plan accordingly and ate it till my hearts content

It wasn't sharp cheese as I don't believe the Deli Deluxe comes as a sharp, but I could certainly be wrong anout that!

All I can say is yum

Rosethorns - never tried that, but now I feel I've been missing out lol. I'll try it when I get the slices to make this cheese sauce.

I can see this drizzled on vegetables or even on meats for added yumminess and variety! (Ooooh...cheeseburgers)!!

Dottie: Thanks for the heads up on the carbs. My high carb cheese sauces included a roux, so way worse lol.

And don't forget to count the carbs in your cream as well! But it is great not having to use a thickener as sometimes they either alter the taste or texture....slimy

Sounds good to me! I make dorito type chip with low carb pita bread, this would make a great dip for them, I will have to try it soon.

This sounds really good. I'm going to look for the Kraft Deli Deluxe cheese. Is there a recipe for the hazelnut crackers somewhere?

Barbo - I just use Joseph's low carb pita bread. I leave the pieces whole, I brush the tops with olive oil then sprinkle with garlic pepper, and/or taco seasoning or nacho cheese seasoning. Then cut into triangles with a pizza cutter. Bake in 325 degree oven 8-10 mins. till golden and crispy. They are very similar to doritos (as I remember doritos anyway). Cool on wire rack several hours or overnight to retain crispness. I store mine in a plastic container with screw-on lid, they stay crispy for a long time. When I want chips or something crunchy with a sandwich these really do the trick. I only eat 5-6 triangles at a time so the carbs are really low.

I am making this this weekend! I bought the Kraft Deli Deluxe slices and got the hazelnut flour for the crackers from Netrition. I think I will make both for lunch tomorrow.

I made the cheese sauce for lunch but ran out of time to make the crackers. But the cheese sauce was AWESOME. I dipped pork rinds in it and that was my lunch! It is so easy to make and tastes so good. I am also going to use it without the salsa as a cheese sauce for green beans and broccoli. Would love to hear other variations. Thank you so much - this recipe is a definite keeper!

Is everyone using the slices for the dip?

I found an 8 oz. brick of American cheese at my grocers. It was half the price of the package of individual slices, yet the ingredients were pretty much the same.

I haven't bought any yet, but just curious if the single slices are more expensive because of the convenience?

I'm the original poster and when I found the recipe it was very specific about it being the Deli Deluxe. That said....it didn't have a comparison of ingredients, so if you're saying the cheese you found is identical, I'd try it.....just know that it seemed very specific to the Deli Deluxe

Thank you so much, Marieze. When the time comes, I'll probably try it with the cheaper brick and when I do, I'll let y'all know how it worked...or didn't work lol.
