    Hi there, this recipe sounds & looks delightful! I am confused with some of the directions, though. Please bear with me as I'd love to make this soon... When you say "stir in warm cream" what do you mean? Also, I'm assuming you saute the onions in a separate pan. Is that right? Thanks!

    This just sounds like wonderful southwest tex/mex comfort food! I'll change the flour to cornstarch and make this gluten-free. Thanks!
