Spicy Beer Cheese Fondue

by Milisa on January 10, 2014

Spicy Beer-Cheese Fondue is a tasty appetizer that everyone will have fun eating!  Best served with bread cubes, little smokies, veggies and even chips. 

Spicy Beer-Cheese Fondue from Miss in the KitchenAre you a football fan?  I used to be a huge football fan.  In my younger years I would sleep in on Sunday and then watch football all afternoon.  These days I have too many other things to do besides watching football or sleeping in for that matter.  Sometimes being an adult is not that fun.

Although I don’t watch much football anymore, I still manage to squeeze in the Super Bowl, but that is likely for the excuse to make a ton of yummy snacks.

This year we will definitely be including fondue on the Super Bowl party menu.  Football watching demands guy food and maybe you don’t necessarily think fondue is guy food, but it is when it’s Spicy Beer-Cheese Fondue!

Serve it up with some crusty bread chunks and little smokies or chunks of ham, it is totally irresistible.

I am actually new to the whole fondue concept but now I am totally hooked.  The boys thought it was so fun to get their own little skewer fork and dip it in the cheese.  I declared no double-dipping and I’m sure they abided by the rule – yeah right.

fondue - Swissmar

I used a combination of cheeses including Pepper-Jack and Munster plus a bit of beer that added a nice depth of flavor to the sauce.

I was pretty excited to try out the Swissmar Fondue Set.  The enameled cast iron pot was ideal for keeping the cheese sauce warm and the little burner was easy to use.  Being enameled cast iron it is durable but also looks great and clean up was so easy.  I already have some great fondue dessert ideas, so be on the look out for those.

I love fondue and have never made it at home this will be the perfect recipe to try it at home. When I lived in CA my daughter and her best friend and I would once a month do girls night at Melting Pot. Great Memories

Cheese fondue yum!


emily willingham January 14, 2014 at 7:21 am

If i were to win this awesome fondue pot, i would make every fondue recipe i could get my hands on. i have always loved fondue, but have only had the opportunity to have it on only several occasions in my 50-some years- LOL. that being said, i think the FIRST fondue recipe would be something really cheesy and authentically swiss!


cindy January 14, 2014 at 10:20 am

I love fondue!


David January 14, 2014 at 10:44 am

It depends on the occasion, but I know chocolate would be most commonly used.


Itzia January 14, 2014 at 11:33 am

I’d have to start off with some chocolate.


Maria P. January 14, 2014 at 2:12 pm

Chocolate and fruit


Suzanne Marble January 14, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Id do Chocolate and fruit although the cheese one is looking good


Susan January 14, 2014 at 4:15 pm

Beer and cheese? I’m sold! Looks like a great fondue.


kristin sims January 14, 2014 at 4:17 pm

i would love to make chocolate fondue, and serve with different fruits, thank you!


Marjory @ Dinner-Mom January 14, 2014 at 5:58 pm

Love this fondue recipe…and chocolate too!


Danielle Porter January 14, 2014 at 8:32 pm

I would probably start with chocolate, or white chocolate!!! Then venture into cheeses. :-)


Nicole Given January 14, 2014 at 8:45 pm

I love Fondue, but have never tried to make it at home. Would love the chance to try


Brianne K January 14, 2014 at 10:03 pm

The cheese fondue sounds delish but I am definitely going to use it for chocolate fondue. Chocolate covered bananas are to die for! lol


Diana Cote January 14, 2014 at 10:58 pm

I would love to do both Cheese and Chocolate, I could see us doing cheese more because we could make it a weekly family meal thing. :)


Lynda Del January 14, 2014 at 11:16 pm

Love fondue! I’d do a cheese fondue.


Lindsay Giedosh January 15, 2014 at 5:26 am

Any kind of different cheese fondue recipe I could find, I love cheese!


Jen M. January 15, 2014 at 6:34 am

The spicy beer cheese fondue recipe sounds delish, I would love to try it!


Christina January 15, 2014 at 8:08 am

I would make minty chocolate fondue!


Mary Beth Elderton January 15, 2014 at 9:55 am

I might make a cheesy fondue for lightly roasted veggies. Or a chocolate fondue for fruits.


misty January 15, 2014 at 10:08 am

I would make a swiss cheese fondu! oooh yummm!


Allie January 15, 2014 at 10:46 am

Chocolate fondue would be awesome


Karen D January 15, 2014 at 10:50 am

First I’d make a traditional cheese fondue, then a chocolate dessert fondue. After I do both of those, I’d try new and different ones, like your recipe…sounds good!


Laura P. January 15, 2014 at 11:06 am

This recipe sounds good and I like that it uses pepper jack. I would also possibly do a cheddar ale fondue that we have had in the past.


Kaylee Kuroski January 15, 2014 at 11:26 am

I’d use just simple ingredients like cheese, chocolate, or plain oil for my family’s annual fondu New Years Eve party :)


Beaynbopp January 15, 2014 at 3:30 pm

I would love to do chocolate with strawberries, bananas and all…I have ALWAYS wanted a fondu set but just haven’t given into spending the money for one.


Holly Storm-Burge January 15, 2014 at 5:26 pm

I would make THIS cheese fondue!!! I have tried other cheese fondues, but am not crazy about the wine aftertaste. This sounds amazing. And little smokies? Hooked.


Kiera M. January 15, 2014 at 5:58 pm

of course, chocolate!!!


Yelena T January 15, 2014 at 6:10 pm

I have never made fondue but I have always wanted to make some. Cheese fondue sounds really good.


jessica keeton January 15, 2014 at 7:59 pm

I’ve never had fondue but if I won, being a baker, I would start off with chocolate since Valentine’s Day is coming up, but a variety of chocolate, maybe mint chocolate or dark chocolate.


Holly January 16, 2014 at 8:56 am

This beer cheese fondue looks pretty good!


Shaina January 16, 2014 at 10:10 am

Yes to this. That set looks lovely. At Christmas we always do orange chocolate fondue with fruit and cake.


Crystal Rose January 16, 2014 at 11:32 am

I would make a swiss cheese fondue.


Kitty January 16, 2014 at 1:50 pm

The spicy beer cheese!


Alyson from Starting Over @ the Dirty 30 January 16, 2014 at 6:19 pm

Mmmmm chocolate and strawberries:)


Dorothy Teel January 16, 2014 at 6:32 pm

I think that I would love to try a desert fondue, like chocolate and fruit, pretzels, orange slices, marshmallows and the like, sounds so yummy..


Jerilynn S January 16, 2014 at 8:12 pm

this would be great at my superbowl party


Sandy Headtke January 16, 2014 at 8:27 pm

My kids will eat veggies when I make a mild cheddar fondue. Would love to try a more grown up fonduewith sharp cheese or spicy.


tammigirl January 16, 2014 at 8:28 pm

I love the classic swiss cheese fondue – and to dip bread until I just can’t dip any more.


Debbie Johnson January 16, 2014 at 8:35 pm

A chocolate fondue with strawberries and pound cake sounds amazing right now.

I would make chocolate — like their is anything better. Oh yeah…cheese!


Kristen M January 16, 2014 at 10:26 pm

We like cheese fondue. I usually pick more mild child-friendly cheese and I like to add a splash of apple flavor like cider.
