White Queso {Restaurant Style}

After years of wasting money on store bought white queso, I have finally found a close to legit white queso recipe! It makes a ton, so try it out at your next party.

1 lb white American cheese (found at the deli counter)
1 to 1-1/2 cups half and half
1/4 cup finely diced white onion
2 Tablespoons butter
2 cans chopped green chiles

In a small frypan saute the onion in the butter until translucent. In the microwave or on top of a double boiler, melt the cheese with the half and half. You can judge how much to use on how thick or thin you like it. Add the onion and chiles and stir until all incorporated. Serve with tortilla chips.

I have been looking for professional looking restaurant aprons in griffith... What's the best color to get? I feel like white will just look really dirty really quickly...
