An easy, cheesy Tamale Sauce that reigns supreme with its Tex-Mex flare and kick of spice. The perfect consistency for drizzling over tamales and more!
Place a skillet over medium heat, and add the butter. As soon as it has melted, sprinkle over the flour. Whisk until a paste has formed and stir for 1-2 minutes more.
Begin adding the beef broth a splash at a time, whisking well after each addition, until it resembles a pudding-like consistency. Once this consistency has been achieved, begin streaming in the broth, whisking all the while. Allow the mixture to simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
Add the adobo sauce, taco seasoning and American cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted and remove from the heat.
Top your tamales with the Tex-Mex Tamale Sauce, serve and enjoy.
Recipe makes enough sauce for 12-14 tamales.
