Mexicana® Microwave

in a Mug Fondue


  • 50g < Mexican beer (weighing is much easier than measuring fizzy beer!)
  • ¾ tsp cornflour (2g)
  • A scant pinch of garlic granules (optional)
  • 100g Mexicana®, grated

Chilli shaped dipping chips ingredients

  • Slices of thin bread
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Garlic granules
  • Salt and pepper





1. Mix the beer, garlic granules and the cornflour well in a large mug, and microwave on full power for 30 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir, then zap for another 15 seconds.

2. Stir the thickened beer and add half the grated Mexicana®. Stir in the cheese and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove the mug, add the remaining cheese, stir and blast for a final 15 seconds.

3. Stir and serve with our chilli shaped dipping chips, tortilla chips or chunks of bread.

4. If the fondue starts to cool, simply blast it in the microwave for a few seconds and stir.
