"THERE'S A VELVEETA SHORTAGE? WHAT WILL I DO FOR ALL MY GOOEY CHEESE NEEDS? OF WHICH I HAVE MANY!"

Shhh [presses fingers against your lips], it'll be ok. First off, not all stores are experiencing a shortage, as reported by NBC News*. But if you can't find Velveeta in your area, make your own! Kenji's easy cheese sauce recipe is an ooey gooey, creamy, tangy dip that's perfect for fries, nachos, and whatever else you want to bathe in "liquid gold."

* My favorite part of the article: "Oh yeah, I've got Velveeta," said Wayde, a manager at an Associated Food Store in Salt Lake City, Utah, who declined to give his last name.
