Skewers threaded with cooked shrimp and pieces of bell pepper are dippers for a wine and Cheddar-Jarlsberg cheese fondue seasoned with hot pepper sauce.

  • Servings: 6-9

Ingredients:

1 cup White Wine
8 oz Grated Premium Yellow Cheddar Cheese
8 oz Grated Jarlsberg Cheese
1½ Tbsp Flour
1-2 Tbsp Hot Pepper Sauce
2-3 tsp Canned Chipotle Peppers In Adobe Sauce, optional
2 Green Bell Peppers, seeded, grilled or sauteed and cut into 1" pieces
Dozen Large Shrimp, cleaned, and cooked or grilled

Directions:

Heat wine to boiling and cook 2 minutes. Toss both cheeses with the flour. Reduce heat to low and gradually whisk cheese mixture into wine, stirring constantly until melted. Add hot sauce and the chipotle, if desired.

To serve, thread 1 piece of pepper on a wooden skewer or long toothpick, followed by 1 shrimp, then another piece of pepper. Repeat with remaining skewers. Serve with warm fondue mixture.
