In medium saucepan, whisk milk and cornstarch together until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Stir in cheeses. Lower heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted and the mixture is very smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato, onions and jalapeño and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until flavors blend, about 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with chili powder and serve hot.
