Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 bacon strips, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped, optional
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cubed

Directions

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. In the drippings, saute onion until tender. Stir in flour until blended; cook and stir until thickened.
Reduce heat to low. Add cheese cubes; cook and stir until melted. Stir in sour cream, jalapeno if desired and bacon; cook and stir just until heated through. Transfer to a fondue pot and keep warm. Serve with bread cubes. Yield: 3-3/4 cups.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
