  1. Sweat the onions and garlic in a large saucepan over low heat until they are translucent.
  2. Lightly dust the cheese with cornstarch in a large bowl to keep it from clumping. Add the cheese to the onions and garlic and, as it starts to melt, drizzle in the heavy cream to your preferred consistency. Add the chili and stir until the cheese and chili become one.
  3. Use as a dip with tortilla chips or use as a condiment on burgers, hot dogs, fries or anything else you might want to taste awesome.
