I just made a batch of this for a Daytona 500 party. I doubled the recipe (hungry crowd), and substituted dark beer for half the wine, and Refiner's Fire hot sauce for the ancho powder. First the cheese taste hits you, then the beer, then the hot sauce kicks in. Wonderful!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub the inside of a fondue pot or earthenware casserole with the halved garlic; discard or leave pieces in the pot for stronger garlic flavor.
  2. Pour the wine into the top of a double boiler over simmering water; heat wine to a simmer.
  3. Add the cheese 1/4 cup at a time to the double boiler, stirring after each addition until all the cheese is melted, stir in cornstarch.
  4. Add tequila, cilantro and chili powder, stirring until blended.
  5. Carefully pour cheese mixture into fondue pot.
  6. Place pot on the table, use bread, tortillas and vegetables for dipping into cheese.
