  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes, until starting to soften. Add the ground beef and chili seasoning. Cook until the beef is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk together the milk and heavy cream. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch to form a slurry. Pour the slurry into milk mixture and whisk to combine. Put mixture back on the heat and bring to a simmer.
  4. Whisk in the cheese until fully melted and season with the salt. Add the diced tomatoes and green chiles and whisk to combine.
