Ingredients

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)

Directions

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.
