  1. In a heavy, 4-quart saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the tomatoes and saute, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the package of Hidden Valley(R) Original Ranch(R) Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix and stir gently to dissolve the seasoning mix.
  2. While the tomatoes are cooking, combine the flour and cheese in a bowl and toss to coat the cheese.
  3. Add the wine to the tomato mixture, stir once, and then add the cheese, a handful at a time. Heat and stir until the cheese is completely melted. Transfer to a fondue pot set over an alcohol or sterno flame to keep it warm. Serve immediately.

Great recipe although I made a couple of small changes. Added 2 cloves of pressed garlic at end of tomatoes cooking and mixed 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 monterey jack, and used drained and squeezed canned tomatoes; 1/2 diced and 1/2 with chilies. AWESOME! Yeah, we licked the pan!




I really liked this recipe. It is much better than some other cheese fondue recipes I've tried. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is that I found it to be a little too pungeant. Others who try this recipe might disagree. The second time I made it I tried using mild cheddar as opposed to sharp, but it still had a pungeant flavor. I love the addition of the tomatoes. Definately a keeper.




this was very good. i was pressed for time and used salsa instead of cooking the tomatoes. Go Badgers!
