Cheese Fondue for 18 People!
The new varieties of Velveeta make this a pretty simple recipe. To make 8 quarts of cheese fondue, melt one 3-pound block of cream cheese, two 2-pound blocks of Velveeta sharp cheddar and two 2-pound blocks of Velveeta Queso Blanco ... in 2 cups of whole milk. This is a very slow process:
- cut the cheese into 2-inch cubes
- do it over medium/low heat
- stir it constantly
- After it has melted into the milk, add 1/2 bottle of dry white wine, 2 Tablespoons of smoked paprika, 1 Tablespoon of onion powder, 2 teaspoons white pepper and a little salt if you desire ... but I think the Velveeta has plenty of salt in it.
This recipe is perfect when you are using individual fondue pots ... and you can change the flavor by adding your favorite spices or fresh herbs. The liquid measurements can be adjusted if you like thicker or thinner fondue. You can add less milk and more wine ... you decide!
