Heat Butter in a skillet. As the butter melts add flour and whisk until the mixture gets fragrant. Gently pour in milk and keep whisking until smooth, creamy and lump free.
Finally, stir in Chopped Chipotle Peppers or a tablespoon of Chipotle Sauce in adobo sauce along with shredded Colby Jack Cheese, Salt and Pepper.
Stir until combined. Serve it over tacos or as a dip or cool it down and store it in an airtight jar in the refrigerator. This can be stored for upto a month.

Yes, this is Vegan and Gluten Free. Cornstarch is 100% Gluten Free. This is Vegan recipe for dinner.
However, I have topped it with Cheesy Chiptole Sauce and Ranch.

Bake the Cauliflower for 15-20 minutes.
After this time, toss them in Hot Sauce and bake for 5-10 more minutes or until they are perfectly crispy.
