Yield 2 1/2 cups
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium jalapeno, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup water
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar
  • 4 ounces shredded Monterey jack

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. 
  2. Stir in the onion, jalapeno, and cumin and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until vegetables have softened.
  3. Add the cream cheese, heavy cream, and water to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the cream cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low and add the shredded cheese a handful at a time, whisking constantly, until all of the cheese has been added and the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  5. Add additional water as desired to reach the consistency you prefer.

Notes

We like to top our queso with pico de gallo before serving.

You can add extra jalapeno to make this spicier or skip it altogether to keep it more mild.
