Cajun Hot Pepper Cheese Fondue
This fondue isn't for the faint of heart — or stomach. Make sure there's plenty of bread available.
Heat beer in a saucepan. Add cheese in 4 batches, stirring in a figure-eight motion until each batch is completely melted.
Add garlic, onion, parsley, and bell pepper to the mix. Heat until bubbly.
Combine water and cornstarch, stir until smooth. Add to cheese mixture.
Continue cooking and stirring for 1–2 minutes. Add Tabasco.
Remove cheese mixture to a fondue pot. Place on heating source and serve with crusty bread, sausages, and vegetables for dipping.
Andouille is a coarse, spicy, smoked sausage once available only in Louisiana. It's now widely available under several brand names. Savoie's and Richard's are both authentic Louisiana brands. Fresh mirlitons can be found in the produce section of most supermarkets. They're also called chayotes.
