  • 8- ounce block white cheddar cheese good quality
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 6 tablespoons half and half or whole milk more for thinning
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1-3 tablespoons finely minced jalapeños
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Tortilla chips for serving
  1. Coarsely grate the white cheddar cheese. Combine the grated cheese and corn starch in a large microwave-safe bowl. Toss with a fork to combine.

  2. Add the half and half, mayonnaise, cumin and onion powder and stir to combine.
  3. Microwave on high power for about 1 minute, until cheese is mostly melted. Stir well and return to microwave for 1 more minute. Stir until all cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add red peppers, 1-2 tablespoons of the jalapeños and crushed red pepper. Stir to combine. Add a little more half and half if the mixture is too thick. Taste and add more jalapeños and/or crushed red pepper if more heat is desired. Serve with tortilla chips.
