Preparation Note

This recipe works best with freshly grated cheese. If you can, buy a block of cheese and grate it yourself. Pre-shredded cheese often contains starch to prevent it from clumping, and that can prevent it from melting smoothly.

1 tablespoons butter
cups diced tomatoes
cups diced orange bell peppers
2 tablespoons canned diced green chilies
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoons onion powder
½ teaspoons kosher salt
½ cups whole milk
2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese shredded
2 ounces raw jack cheese shredded
3 ounces cream cheese
4 thinly sliced green onions
hot sauce (optional)
thinly sliced jalapeño peppers (optional)
chopped cilantro (optional)
