I spend way too much time thinking about nachos and just food in general. So last night while I was lying in bed dreaming about the perfect cheese covered tortillas, I had an idea. What's the best cheese for nachos, obviously Monterey Jack (it's vegetarian horah). So what could possibly be better than a Monterey Jack fondue to dip your tortilla chips in! I'll tell you what, Monterey Jack fondue with jalapenos! I made some tortilla chips for funsies but you can use the bagged kind too.
For 4 you'll need:
4 large tortillas
Salt and Pepper (or any spices you want, cayenne pepper, paprika ect)
1 garlic clove halved
600ml vegetarian dry cider
400g Monterey Jack grated
4 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp mustard powder
A good pinch of salt and pepper
As many Jalapenos as you can handle (I chopped mine in to smaller pieces, you can leave them whole if you're hard core)
Make the tortilla chips by cutting the tortillas up like a pizza and popping on a baking tray. Spray for brush with olive oil and cover with the salt and pepper or spices. Then bake in a preheated oven for around 1o-15 minutes until crisp then leave to cool.
Make the fondue by rubbing the garlic clove around the base and sides of a fondue pot or heavy based sauce pan and then discard the clove. Mix the cheese with the cornflour, mustard powder, salt and pepper. Pour the cider into the pot and bring to the boil, then add the cheese mixture and keep stirring until melted. When it's nice and thick, take off the heat and toss the jalapenos on top and get dunking.
