My taste buds concur. I have used the whites in comb w other onions for onion soup. I make onion soup in onion bowls (the onion being the 'bowl') - hollow out the onion leaving a few skins, diced it up w other onions, & pour the onion soup into the shell/bowl. The onion shell also makes a nice presentation to fill with dips (guac etc), using the onion insides chopped up & added to the mix. You can also stuff the onions (again, chopping up the insides) & adding it to your stuffing 'mix'. You might also use them for chili or in Mexican dishes.
