This Mexican Beer Cheese Fondue definitely has upped the spice quotient. If jalapeños make a cheese sauce delicious, I abide by the theory that a big handful of jalapeños would make it outstanding. And I’m not talking about the pickled variety. I’m talking fresh from the garden or produce aisle. While I love the spice, if you’re looking for a more mild fondue, you’ll simply want to remove the seeds and membranes from the peppers first as that’s where all of the heat is found.
