Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • For best results, use Hidden Valley Sandwich Spread and Dip in the Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan flavor.
  • Look for Guggisberg brand pepper-jack cheese for the best flavor.

  • Substitute vegan cream cheese for the sour cream. This substitution provides a vegan-friendly option while still maintaining the creamy texture of the fondue.
  • Substitute frozen cooked shrimp for the salad shrimp. This substitution allows for convenience and a longer shelf life, making it easier to prepare the fondue without having to worry about the shrimp going bad.

Spicy Cheddar Fondue Replace the pepper-jack cheese with 12 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese and add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the fondue mixture.

Mexican Street Corn Salad - A delicious and refreshing side dish that pairs perfectly with the spicy shrimp fondue. The sweetness of the corn and the tangy flavor of the lime juice and cilantro complement the spicy flavors of the fondue.

Roasted Poblano and Potato Tacos - These tacos are a great way to add a bit of heat to the meal. The smoky flavor of the roasted poblanos combined with the creamy potatoes and the spicy shrimp fondue make for a delicious combination. Plus, they are easy to make and can be served as a main dish or a side.


Q: How do I ensure the cheese melts properly?

A: Make sure the heat is on low and do not let the fondue boil. Stir the cheese until it melts completely and all the ingredients are combined.

Q: What other ingredients can I add to the fondue?

A: You can add other types of cheese, such as cheddar, gruyere, or gouda. You can also add herbs, garlic, and spices to give the fondue more flavor. You can also add wine or brandy to the fondue for a boozy twist.
