3 Sauce Ingredients
So, here are the 3 ingredients you’ll need:
Milk – you can use any milk you like. If you’re making a small portion of sauce, go for a quarter of a cup, if you’re needing more, like for for a mac and cheese, than aim for a half a cup or more.
Sour Cream – for the tangy, rich creaminess. As with the milk, go for a quarter to half a cup, depending on how you’ll be using the sauce. The sour cream gets to work thickening the sauce, without the need for flour.
Cheese – use any grated cheese you like, or a combination of a few cheeses for an extra cheesy sauce.

Cream Cheese – for an extra creamy, cheesy texture.
