DP and I loved the cheese fondue at Las Iguanas. The potatoes were crispy and fluffy and the cheese...

I’m drooling blush

Would love to recreate the dish at home. Does anyone have the recipe?

TIA tbusmile

No answers but shamelessly watching - their food is amazing! Esp cassava fries grin

if you search google for peruvian cheese fondue and potatos would that come up with something.

@AtleastitsnotMonday I tried one of those the other week (think it was the enchilada). Really not great - nothing like the restaurant food. Hopefully it was just part of a bad batch, but won’t be trying it again.

@kateandme I googled Peruvian cheese fondue but couldn’t find any blush. Can anyone help?

What I did find though was this Mexican cheese fondue recipe. It seems fairly straightforward but does anyone know what I can use instead of lager?

I was about to suggest queso fundido. I use the Wahaca recipe, which has tomatoes rather than potatoes. You could use wine or vermouth instead of the lager, if you have any. Or if you want it to be non-alcoholic I'd use stock.

Apple juice, some stock with a bit of lemon juice or vinegar
