1/4 cup diced white onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
2 teaspoons minced cilantro

2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced (about 2/3 cup)
1/4 cup ranchero cheese, crumbled

- Combine Velveeta and milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir frequently as cheese melts so that it does not burn…
- When cheese is melted add the remaining ingredients, but not the tomatoes. Continue to cook over medium/low heat for 7 minutes, stirring often to prevent burning. Stir in tomatoes and remove queso from heat.
- Pour queso into a serving dish, top with crumbled ranchero cheese and serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
