Homemade Nacho Cheese Sauce

Why go out and buy a huge can of this delicious stuff when it's so easy to make at home? I love just sitting at home on a lazy afternoon, watching some baseball, and making my own ballpark nachos with homemade cheese sauce and pickled jalapenos.

Melt the butter and flour together at medium low heat until they form a thickened sauce, approximately 4 minutes. 

If adding jalapenos, add them along with the milk and cheese. Stir constantly until the cheese is melted, approximately 10 minutes. 

Serve warm.
