Great sauce! Some of my guests like a bit of cheese sauce on their asparagus and/or carrots! The chiile powder added just enough flavor to bring the taste up a notch!

We are taking our 8 year old grandson to Seattle. Where is the cheese factory and can we take a tour? Mac and Cheese is his very favorite.
