How To Make Stadium-Style Nacho Cheese

    Add an HD TV and a fridge full of beer for maximum sports viewing pleasure.

    Proper nacho cheese should taste a little wrong.

    It should coat and cling to a chip in a way that's foul yet glorious.

    Here's what you'll need to get there:


    Onion, minced

    Green chile, chopped

    Tomato, seeded and finely chopped

    Ground turmeric


    Cayenne pepper


    Heavy cream


    Monterey Jack cheese

    Olive oil

    Salt pepper

    (And if you want the picked jalapenos, you'll need peppers and vinegar, too.)
