  • Add onion; cook, stirring often, until beginning to char, 6-7 minutes.
  • Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add oregano and 1 cup water; simmer until onion is tender and water has evaporated, 5-7 minutes.
  • Add chiles; cook until flavors meld, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; stir in crème fraiîhe and cheese.
  • Add water by tablespoonfuls if mixture is too dry. Season to taste with salt.
