Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove rub pot with garlic and discard
  • 1/3 cup Chardonnay or any white wine
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 16 ounces Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup packed spinach frozen spinach that's microwaved & squeeze out water
  • 1/4 cup scallions
  • 1 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk add little at a time and whisk to avoid curdling
  • 1 baguette cubed, Italian or French

Instructions

Prep

  • Chop scallions. Microwave a handful of frozen chopped spinach. Once it cools, remove the excess water. You will need 1/3 cup of packed spinach once the extra water is removed.

Cook

  • Heat up a pot on low-medium heat. Once hot, rub a garlic clove all over. This adds a touch of garlic without overdoing it.
  • Now add chardonnay (or any white wine) and cream cheese.
  • Using a whisk, start breaking down the cream cheese.
  • Three minutes later you should have a smooth and creamy mixture.
  • Reduce the heat to low. Now add Mexican blend cheese. Be careful the cheese doesn't curdle so add a little bit at a time or make sure the cheese is at room temperature.
  • Use a whisk to stir it in.
  • Once mixed in, it should be smooth and creamy. Now add 1/4 cup of milk (we will add more later, but just start with a 1/4 cup). Slowly whisk it in.
  • Add the microwaved spinach with the water squeezed out. Whisk it in.
  • Add all the spices - cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and black pepper. Whisk it in.
  • Now add another 1/2 cup of milk - a little bit at a time. Check the consistency and add milk until you reach your desired consistency. You can add anywhere from 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup of milk.
  • This is the consistency I like.
  • Cover the cheese fondue and turn off the stove. This will keep it warm.
  • Chop up some bread - a good Italian or French baguette works.
