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.

Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. (Note: Be sure to use sharp Cheddar cheese for a nice full flavor.) Mmmmmmm!" - chef john

"Very tasty, I did half the seasonings because we only had about a 2 -2.5 lb elk roast for my husband and I. Very tender and juicy, I always love the veggie flavors! I loved how the drippings were already made into a gravy. Great for Sunday dinners!" - simplydelicious

"I bought a very cheap roast and stabbed it all over with a fork (just to make sure that it was dead). I used the mixed dry ingredients as a rub before sprinkling the rest over the meat. Like other people, I cut the dressing mix somewhat (but I did so to reduce the sodium content and not ... " - millereg
