Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeño finely chopped (You can use canned diced jalapeño peppers or green chiles if you prefer; just add them with the tomatoes.)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
  • 8 American cheese singles cut up
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • Fresh cilantro for garnishing (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a cast-iron skillet or a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and sauté the onion, garlic, and jalapeño (if using fresh) with cumin, salt, and cornstarch for 2 to 3 minutes, until the onion is translucent.

  2. Add the broth and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir constantly, allowing the sauce to thicken.

  3. Add the cheese and tomatoes. Carefully simmer the queso over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir and adjust its thickness to suit your taste by adding more broth or cheese.

  4. Serve hot with tortilla chips.
