Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 35 min Yield: 8 Serving
Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
1/2 cup vegetable oil (see note)
1 onion, chopped
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup canned tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons paprika
Garlic powder to taste
1/4 cup each: flour and water
1/2 pound American cheese, grated (2 cups)
Combine oil, onion, salt, pepper, tomatoes, cayenne, sugar, paprika and garlic powder in heavy pot and simmer 25 to 30 minutes over medium heat. Mix flour and water in small bowl; add to onion mixture gradually, stirring until smooth and thick. Add cheese, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Cook until well-blended and smooth. Serve warm with tortilla chips.
Note: Some readers omit the oil because they think the cheese has enough fat. If so, sautÚ the onion in 2 tablespoons hot oil to soften. A similar recipe attributed to Felix's appears in the Houston Junior Forum cookbook, Buffet on the Bayou ($17.95), but the sugar is omitted and paprika increased to 3 tablespoons.

"I've made this twice (doubled the recipe both times) - definitely a keeper and no comparison to store-bought. My only tweaks: I added a half-tablespoon of garlic salt, crushed the fennel seeds (mortar and pestle) and used a hand-blender when it was done to make it smooth. The leftovers keep really well in the freezer." - cyarcher3
"This is delicious! Mine turned out a bit like vodka sauce somehow. I sauteed the veggies in the oil and butter using my instant pot, then added everything else before pressure cooking for a few minutes as someone else suggested. A bit extra on sugar and some honey for bitter ... " - shoni w.
