Chefclub's Tips & Hacks

To switch it up a bit, opt for a cheese sauce instead of guacamole! Heat 1 cup heavy cream over low heat and add ⅔ cup shredded swiss cheese. Mix until the cheese melts, then add ¼ cup grated colby jack cheese and ⅔ cup grated cheddar. Mix with a whisk to obtain a smooth and homogeneous sauce.
