Mojo Fondue inspired by The Melting Pot

Mojo Fondue inspired by The Melting Pot

This is my favorite fondue recipe. Fondue is great for trying new things and making a wonderful at home date night. 

First I do recommend an electric fondue pot.  I purchased mine at target for about $20. You can adjust the temperature and it is easy to clean as well. We do have to use an extension cord because the cord it comes with is quite short. 

5-6 cups of Chicken Stock (about 1 box, sometimes I use 1 1/2 boxes)
1/4 cup of orange juice (can be from a fresh orange, I have also used "simply orange" juice as well)
1/4 cup CHOPPED cilantro (I did not chop it in the picture above, it would be much better chopped) 
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons jerk seasoning
2 tablespoons black pepper
the juice of one fresh squeezed lime
1 tablespoon minced garlic
if you like things a little more spicy: 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Food for cooking: (be creative and use things you like, these are just my suggestions)
chicken tenders chopped in bite size pieces 
thin pork chops cut into bite size pieces 
uncooked, de-shelled shrimp
new potatoes or any potato cut into bite size pieces
corn on the cob cut into 4ths

We also like to use some sauces for the meat after it is cooked. I have bought a pre made curry sauce, a spicy asian sauce and good old fashioned A-1. I serve these in tiny little dishes perfect for dipping. Be creative and find the perfect sauce for you. 

Bring your "Stock" ingredients to a boil and then lower your heat to a simmer.
Add your veggies to the pot and let them soak in the broth. Fish them out with a large spoon when you are ready to eat them.  
Use your fondue sticks to cook your raw meat. Never put raw meat on the same plate that you will be eating from!! Cook for 2-5 min depending on the meat and have fun.
