I subbed Velveeta for Cheezwhiz. I also sautéed some jalapeno with the onion at the beginning.

Oh my! How awesome is this? It is great! I sweated some onions in the butter before I added the flour, Then used half milk half chicken broth instead of half and half (just because I didn't feel like going to the store..LOL) and a lite beer. Used Velveeta, since I have never seen Cheez Whiz I could cube. Had no red pepper so I used some hot sauce! Wonderful! Will be making all winter long! Thanks!
