– Step 4: When the butter is completely melted, mix in the flour, and allow to simmer for approximately a minute, whisking continuously, to completely eliminate the flour flavor from the sauce.

– Step 6: Slowly add the Velveeta and season with salt and pepper until the cheese is melted and the sauce has smoothed out, stirring continuously.
