Easy Restaurant Style White Queso (QUESO BLANCO)

3/4 lb good quality white american cheese (pay extra for the good stuff, I got mine from the deli counter), shredded or finely chopped
1/2 lb good quality fontina cheese, shredded or very finely chopped
1 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons canned jalapenos, finely chopped (You can also use Green Chiles. I love Old El Paso SO MUCH for both types!)
1/2 teaspoon cumin (optional. some readers haven't liked this spice although we did. see note in instructions) ***
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional. some readers haven't liked this spice although some did) ***

Very easy to make, will not complain about the price of pre-made Queso again.
