Spicy Jalapeno Cheese Fondue

Everyone loves fondue! It's a great party food or an intimate dinner for two. Once you know the trick it's easy to make. Always make your fondue on the stove and transfer the hot fondue to the pot just before serving. Fondue is best made in a double boiler. Use whatever you like for dipping, baguettes, veggies, sausage rounds, even sliced apples. Hard cider or a sweeter white wine pair well with most savory fondues. Spicy Jalapeno Cheese Fondue would be a great appetizer served with crisp baked tortilla chips and salsa.

Add water to the bottom of your double boiler and heat to a slow boil. Put the grated cheese in a plastic bag and add flour, a half cup or so.  Shake the bag carefully and add flour a little at a time till there is some extra flour in the bottom of the bag. You only want to put the flour that clings to the cheese into your fondue.  Throw away the leftovers in the bag. Put the milk, jalapenos, and cheese flour mixture into the top of the double boiler and stir. Put the double boiler together and cook the fondue to the desired thickness. Stir constantly.  If the fondue gets too thick, add a little cream or a splash of white wine. Warm your fondue pot before you pour in the hot fondue.
