2 cups whipping cream
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon chicken base
1 tablespoon jalapeno juice or vinegar
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 finely minced jalapeno
2 ounces shredded Monterey jack or Monterey jack/ Cheddar cheese
Beat whipping cream over a high heat. Add sour cream as soon as whipping cream begins to boil. Reduce to medium heat when sour cream dissolves. Stir in chicken base and jalapeno juice. Simmer.
Make a roux by melting the butter, adding the flour and whisking until mixture turns a pale gold color. Add roux to cream mixture, whisking constantly until incorporated. Remove from heat and stir in jalapenos and cheese. Cool. Use warm or cold as a dip; or serve as a sauce over fish, chicken or pasta.
