  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, and cook for about a minute. Whisk in the flour with a fork so no lumps form. Cook and stir with the fork until browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place the avocado into a blender or food processor, and pour in the milk, cream, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Puree until smooth. Pour into a heat proof bowl or casserole dish, and stir in the onion and garlic mixture.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in the tequila and cheese, and return to the oven for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Stir and serve as a fondue.

This was a very bland recipe, IMO; however, we added some cumin late in the cooking process and that made a big difference. It went from uneaten to gone!

I'm undecided about this recipe. My husband liked it but thought it needed more tequila. I thought it was too bland. We dipped shrimp and bread as suggested. The shrimp went well with it, but I used some sourdough bread that I had and it didn't go well with the fondue at all. IF I try this recipe again I will add more tequila and use a different kind of bread. On the upside, it was very easy and quick.


I made this fondue for the first course of a sit-down dinner shower for 20 people that was themed "Noche Romantica". We had three pots, one on each table, and each pot was wiped clean by the bread I served with it! People raved and absolutely loved it. It was a huge hit!! I am making it again now!
