  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, chopped finely
  • 1 cup heavy cream or milk
  • 12 ounces cheese (Monterey Jack work well)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies (drained)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Cilantro, finely chopped


  1. Heat oil in skillet.
  2. Add onions and cook until soft and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add in pepper(s) and cook another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add in rest of ingredients.
  5. Stir well until melted.
  6. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
  7. Optional: top with more chopped cilantro or a little pico de gallo for color and freshness.

Note: Add cooked ground beef or chorizo for an even heartier and more delicious dip!
