  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 2 tbsp. sriracha hot sauce plus more if desired
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder


  1. Heat a small saucepan to medium heat. Add butter.

  2. Once butter is completely melted, add flour and whisk to combine. Let cook for 30 seconds. Add sriracha and whisk again. Add milk and whisk well. 

  3. Let cook for 4-5 minutes, over medium heat, until mixture starts to simmer and thicken. Stir every minute or so to prevent sticking. Once thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, turn off heat.
