The Best Queso Garlic Cloves Cheese Sauce

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Sauces, Cheese

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Tb. butter
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 jalapeños, seeded and diced
  • 2 chipotle chiles, diced (canned in adobo sauce)
  • 1 1/2 cups California half & half (or evaporated milk)
  • 1 Tb. cornstarch
  • 4 oz. California cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
  • 2 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 8 oz. California smoked cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 oz. California sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


1. Place a medium pot over medium heat. Add the butter, shallots, garlic and jalapeño. Saute for 3-4 minutes to soften, then add the half & half and chipotle peppers.

2. Whisk in the cornstarch. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer, so the half & half can scald (not necessary with evaporated milk) then lower the temperature to medium-low. Then stir in the cream cheese and mustard.

3. Slowly start adding the shredded cheese. Stir and add by the handful, until the sauce comes together. If you prefer your cheese sauce a little thinner, add an extra splash of half & half. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a slow cooker or fondue pot.
