Recipe Ingredients for Queso with Green Chilies

1/3 pound american cheese
1/3 cup heavy cream
10 ounces green chilies, canned/diced

Recipe Directions for Queso with Green Chilies

  1. pour some of the heavy cream into a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Do not boil.

  2. Add cheese gradually and continue to stir (this keeps the cheese from burning on the bottom of the pan).

  3. Gradually add more heavy cream as desired (1/3 cup is only a suggestion - it depends on how thick you like your queso).

  4. Once the cream/cheese mixture is completely mixed (do not boil), add the canned green chilies (you can drain if you wish, if you don't, it will be slightly less thick).

  5. Mix well and serve over/with your favorite cheesy dishes.
