Garlic Soup

My Mom emailed me this recipe.  And I admit, it does sound a bit scary.  However, my Mom was sending the recipe to a bunch of us because my 18yo (VERY COOL) nephew loved it so much and wanted the recipe so he could make this for himself.  I don’t know about you, but in my book, if it passes teenage boy taste bud tests, it’s gotta be good.  Plus it is very inexpensive to make.  So please, give it a try, and I promise, you won’t even be gagging on garlic fumes after eating it!
2 small onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 C. butter
6 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 cups chicken broth
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
In a large saucepan, saute onions and garlic in butter until tender, about 2 – 3 min. 
Stir in flour until blended.  Gradually add broth.  Bring back to boil; cook and stir
for 2 minutes or until thickened.  Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 min.
Stir in cayenne pepper.    Yield: 4-6 servings.
