1 cup 1% milk
1 jalapeños, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tbsp. low-fat margarine

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm milk, garlic and jalapeños until boiling. Remove mixture from heat and let sit 15 minutes. Strain and discard jalapeños and garlic.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt margarine. Whisk in flour and salt and cook, whisking, about 3 minutes. Slowly pour in jalapeño-garlic-infused milk while whisking. Reduce heat to medium and continue whisking until mixture thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Add cream cheese, mix well.
