Beer Fondue! February 1, 2011

Filed under: Appetizers & Drinks,Low Fat Diva Blog — Hopp Diva @ 3:47 pm

Most of us remember growing up and enjoying Fondue with our families/friends.  There was cheese fondue, oil fondue and you fried whatever you could or chocolate fondue and we dipped everything from fruit to the kitchen sink!  I mean anything tastes better with chocolate right?   I even have fondue plates!

So now that we are older, wiser and you have chosen to eat more low fat, you might think you can’t have fun with fondue any longer.  Wrong!  I have made over a recipe that is great fun and you can use it this weekend for Super Bowl!  You can purchase everything right at your local Plumbs Market and be sure to pick up some low fat rustic breads or Ciabatta bread or use Snack Factory Pretzels( the Buffalo flavored will be great)  and dip away 🙂  This great low fat fondue will be a nice addition to any Super Bowl spread.  Remember to dig out your fondue forks and watch your friends faces lite up!     Enjoy 🙂   Please send comments/questions to 1lowfatdiva@gmail.com

Beer Fondue

1 cup Low Fat Refried Beans

2 cups grated No Fat Cheddar Cheese

2 Tlb. Blue Bonnett Lite

2 Tlb. minced scallions

1 clove minced garlic

1/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

1 Poblano Chili chopped (optional)

3/4 Brown Ale, Mexican Beer, etc (not a beer with alot of hops) room temp

Combine everything but the beer in a sauce pan.  Heat on med/low for about 15 min or until all cheese is melted (you can also add a little No fat Cream Cheese if you choose).  Slowly add the beer and mix in.  Add to a fondue pot and turn on low.  The fondue should be ready in about 10-15 min.  Cut up bite size pieces of Ciabatta bread or a low fat Rustic bread for dipping.  Buffalo flavored Snack Factory Pretzels are also very good with this dip.  Use you imagination for other dipping options that are low in fat 🙂
