Mr. Smith goes absolutely crazy for this fondue. It is so easy and believe me, it is better than The Melting Pot has to offer (at less than half the price, thankyouverymuch).
This is our new Superbowl tradition, even though we don't generally watch the game. We are PuppyBowl people around here. I am not proud of the fact, it is what it is. I married the only man in the world that isn't into sports. Whoopie!
So skip the over priced restaurant that wants you to COOK YOUR OWN DINNER (thanks I can do that at home for FREE!). You don't have to use the slow cooker, I use a sauce pan on the stove and it works just fine. Either way, go for it!
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 pound sharp cheese, shredded
1 (12 oz.) can beer
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can (4 oz.) green chilies and/or chopped jalapeno peppers to taste
Mix flour with chili powder and toss over shredded cheeses. Pour beer into slow cooker and cover with shredded cheese mixture. Place garlic, green chilies and jalapenos, if desired, over cheese, but do not stir until cheese has begun to melt.
Serve with cubed french bread, green apples, baby carrots, broccoli, and tortilla chips.
