Cover and cook on stovetop over medium-high heat for 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Transfer to oven, cooking 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with sour cream, cilantro, green onions and jalapeno or serrano slices, if desired. Remove and spoon into bowls.
