Add beef to a skillet set over medium heat. Break up the beef into crumbles as it cooks until they are no longer pink. Drain the fat from the beef and place the skillet with the drained beef back on the stove.
Sprinkle chili powder, 1/2 tsp of the salt, cumin, and pepper over the beef. Raise heat to medium-high and pour in the water. Simmer until the water has reduced and stir. Transfer beef to a bowl and wipe out skillet to use again.
Add 1 tsp oil to the skillet set over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and remaining 1/4 tsp salt and stir. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until onion has become golden. Remove skillet from heat.
Add beef, onion/garlic mixture, drained tomatoes, shredded cheeses, cream cheese, chopped chipotle pepper, and 1/2 cup of milk to the insert of a 1.5- or 2-quart slow cooker. Cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours on low, then stir. Stir in an additional 2 tbsp of milk and continue to cook until heated throughout and creamy to your liking. To serve, switch heat to 'warm' and stir occasionally.
I used approximately half of a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles in this recipe. You can add more if you like, just be sure to drain them before adding to the slow cooker.Base queso recipe loosely adapted from TODAY.
