  • 1 pound white american cheese shredded
  • ½ cup half and half more if desired
  • ½ -1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 jalapeño seeds removed, diced
  • ¼ small purple onion diced
  • 1 roma tomato diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro more or less to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Tortilla chips


  • In a large skillet, heat oil, then sauté jalapeño and onion until the pepper is tender and the onion is translucent.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low and add in all of the shredded white american cheese and stir constantly.
  • When the cheese is nearly melted, begin stirring in half and half. I used about 1/2 cup to get the desired consistency. Use more or less to get the consistency that you’re looking for.
  • Add in diced tomato, chopped cilantro, and black pepper. Stir until everything is incorporated and the dip is smooth and creamy.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips, tortillas, or veggies.
  • Enjoy!
