A yummy homemade queso without processed cheese!
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Wondra* flour (all purpose will work, too)
2 cups half and half
1 5.2 ounce package Boursin cheese (I used garlic and fine herbs but black pepper would work well, too)
1 cup white sharp cheddar, grated
1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapenos
Sliced jalapenos, sliced green onions, grape tomatoes, shredded cheddar or cilantro sprigs, to garnish, optional
Tortilla chips, to serve
In a saucepan, melt the butter and whisk in flour. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Slowly whisk in half and half and cook until thickened, stirring frequently.
When thickened, add the Boursin and cheddar cheese and stir until smooth. Add the jalapenos, check for seasonings and add salt and pepper if desired.
Serve hot with tortilla chips
*Wondra flour is made by Gold Medal and is perfect for gravies and sauces as it does not get lumpy.
