Did your favorite team make the playoffs…mine didn’t (I still love you Big Blue Wrecking Crew!) but I’m still going to watch, there are some pretty good matches lined up. There’ll be football games on T.V. wall to wall over the next few weekends so its a perfect time to pop this XXX Hot Beer Cheese Fondue in the crock pot to keep it warm and gooey throughout all the game watching.

I stopped by my local Publix to pick up the ingredients I needed to make my Hot Beer Cheese Fondue -hot sauce, cheese, light beer, peppers, onion and garlic. Steak, bread and veggies were on the list as well, these were going to be delicious grilled up to dip in the melted cheese.

When I say XXX HOT Beer Cheese Fondue I mean temperature hot AND spicy hot thanks to El Yucateco XXXtra Hot Chili Habenero Sauce. I’ve heard people complain that they can’t find a hot sauce hot enough to satisfy them, well they need to try this. El Yucateco XXX Hot is VERY HOT, it’s the hottest sauce in the El Yucateco line, but it’s also very flavorful. The fruity-ness of the habenero peppers really does shine through. El Yucateco hot sauce contains much less vinegar that most other hot sauces, allowing the habenero flavor to take the lead. Made from an old Mayan recipe, it’s about 90% habenero pepper with no artificial color. Pairing the XXX hot sauce with three types of cheese cools the heat a bit. If you like things a spicy but not quite this hot you should try El Yucateco Red Hot Sauce. You’ll still get a nice kick from it but it isn’t as hot as the XXX.
