Grab a small sauce pot and add 2 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon AP flour over medium heat.
Once the roux begins to bubble, slowly add the 2% milk to form a bechamel sauce.
Then, you’ll add the chicken broth. Whisk together.
Next, add cubed Velveeta and ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. Whisk until well combined and melted. Reduce the heat to low. If the sauce gets too tight, simply add a touch more chicken broth.
