Recipe by Penny Stettinius

I love caramelized onions, and anytime I think a well-used recipe needs help, this is what I try. In this instance, I have been making Mary Emmerling's chile con queso for years and just wanted a wee bit more flavor. So, here's the outcome: Over The Top, WOW! And, here's a note: I am not a fan of Velveeta but it does a good job in place of the cheeses in this recipe. I just can't make myself purchase it.
