  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped white onions
  • 1 pound White American cheese
  • 4 ounces green chilies 1 can
  • 4 ounces heavy cream


  • Melt two teaspoons of butter in medium-sized frying pan. Add onions, cook until they become translucent.
  • Place the cheese and heavy cream together in a medium-sized pan and heat over low-medium heat until the cheese melts. 
  • After the cheese has melted, add green chilis and onions and stir well. 

Recipe Tips

I suggest that you use heavy cream, the queso will reheat better than when using milk.  You can serve this in a fondue pot at a party to keep it warm.
