4 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 teaspoon onion powder 

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 

8 ounces white American cheese, shredded (about 2 cups) 

Two 5-ounce cans evaporated milk  

Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish 

Finely diced jalapeno, for garnish 

Finely diced red onion, for garnish 

Tortilla chips, for serving 


  1. Whisk together the cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin in a medium saucepan. Add the cheese and whisk to combine. Pour in the evaporated milk and whisk to combine. Set over medium-low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the cheese is melted and the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes.
  2. Transfer the queso dip to a warm serving dish. Top with cilantro, jalapeno and red onions. Serve with tortilla chips.
