    1 teaspoon garlic, minced
    2 large jalapenos, sliced
    2 cups heavy cream
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 pinch cayenne

    Melt butter and saute onions
    and garlic 2 to 3 minutes

    Do not brown.
    Add jalapenos, cream and
    seasonings and cook until
    onions are soft.
    Whisk in roux, taking
    care to dissolve any lumps.
    Cook 3 to 6 minutes until
    the starchy taste disappears
    and gravy is thickened.
    Taste and adjust seasonings.
