Recipe by Boomette

A recipe from Ricardo that is popular with kids. So I had to try it. My son is beginning kindergarten tomorrow and I wanted to do something he'll like. And this recipe is a winner with it. With us also. It's so easy to do.

We really liked this. I nearly browned the onion because I was busy doing other stuff. I loved the way the onion flavor went throughout. I subbed in some velveeta cause I didn't have Cheeze Whiz. I also added some mild garlic with the onion, it ended up with a much more sophisticated flavor.
