Ingredients

1 Stick Unsalted butter

2 Tablespoons Canola oil

5 Tablespoons Flour

2 Medium Onions -- chopped

1 Head garlic -- roasted and chopped

3 cloves garlic -- crushed

1 can chipotles en adobo -- pureed

2 habanero -- fresh

1 cup Half and half

2 cups whole milk

2 pounds sharp cheddar cheese

1 pound Monterey jack cheese

1 bunch scallion -- chopped

Directions

In a large pan melt the butter and add the oil over medium heat Add the chopped onion, and saute until golden Add the crushed garlic and continue sauteing until onions have nicely browned. Add the flour and combine with butter oil onions and garlic until a nice roux develops. Cook this onion roux for 2 minutes taking care for it not to get too brown (a little is good) Add the half and half slowly, incorporating it into the onion roux little by little. Reduce heat to medium low and add the milk. If you heat the milk first in the microwave this reduces cooking time and can prevent burning. Cook mixture until milk and half and half bubbles, stirring often. Lower heat to a simmer and add chopped habaneros and the puréed chipotles, sauce and all. Cook on simmer for 5 minutes to bring out the flavor of the chiles stirring occasionally. Add the finely chopped roasted garlic cloves. Little by little incorporate all of the cheese stirring constantly. When everything is melted and nicely incorporated transfer to fondue pot or chafing dish and keep heat on very low. Garnish with the chopped scallions and serve with good quality chips.

"I made this cake and it was amazing. I used a double batch to make a three tier cake. I iced it with buttercream frosting and some lemon juice and topped it off with shredded coconut and some lemon zest. It looked amazing and tasted even better. Also it was one of the easiest cakes I've ever made. Will definitely make it again!" - frankiebuddy

"This moist cornbread with a crisp, golden crust is great with chili or as a quick side dish." - heather

"Having worked at St. Louis Bread Co. when they served this soup, there are two things you're missing from the soup. One ingredient that was key to the taste is dill weed. Also, they had some very tiny pieces of chicken in it to make it a little richer. Still, this is a good recipe." - jeff bloomer

"A simple soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect..." - sheldon

"Hello! Has anyone tried this recipe with a pork roast instead of the beef roast? Thanks" - paradisepop2

"I've made this twice now with only the slightest tweaks (added a couple teaspoons of 'Italian Seasoning' mix from our co-op). It's absolutely perfection. Rich, just spicy enough to add interest, and no acid overload. I'm not a fan of tomato-based sauces, but I love this. So did my husband." - p g.8256
