In The Kitchen
Using a microwaveable bowl, combine cheese cubes, milk, and optional water. Place bowl in microwave and cook on high for approximately 5 minutes, stirring mixture after every minute (I like to use a whisk).
Add remaining ingredients to the mixture and combine.
Serve immediately with Tortilla chips.
You can usually find a block of White American cheese at the deli counter of your local grocery store. My go-to brand is Land o Lakes. In a pinch I have successfully used the pre-packaged Land o Lakes slices found in the refrigerated section but removing the individual wrappings is time-consuming and wasteful.
