Southwestern Chile-Cheese Fondue

Southwestern Chile-Cheese Fondue

Flavorful Pepper Jack cheese needs little help to make it taste wonderful. The pickled jalapeƱos may be eaten as a relish or dipped in the fondue and are especially suited to those who like fiery foods. Use fresh corn or flour tortillas, if available, and at serving time, place tortilla wedges in baskets lined with a damp napkin or dish towel. Warm in the microwave for 20 seconds and set out smaller baskets filled with tortilla chips. For festive color, garnish fondue with chopped red peppers.

Nothing says summer like corn. Here, kernels are heated just enough to lose their raw taste, then mixed into a chunky salsa verde. Try the mixture stirred into mashed avocado for instant guacamole.
