Purchase good quality American cheese from your groceries deli. It does make a difference. Do NOT use the prepackaged individually wrapped cheese.

Use fresh jalapenos and sun ripened tomatoes.
You can add cooked Mexican chorizo, crisp cooked crumbled bacon, chopped chipotle peppers, frozen spinach, finely chopped artichokes and even cooked lobster or crawfish.
