Wikipedia: Fondue
Fondue (UK: /ˈfɒnd(j)uː/, US: /fɒnˈd(j)uː/, French: [fɔ̃dy]) is a Swiss melted cheese dish served in a communal pot (caquelon or fondue pot) over a portable stove (réchaud) heated with a candle or spirit lamp, and eaten by dipping bread into the cheese using long-stemmed forks. It was promoted as a Swiss national dish by the Swiss Cheese Union (Schweizerische Käseunion) in the 1930s, and was popularized in North America in the 1960s.

Wikipedia: Chile con queso
Chile con queso (Spanish for “chile with cheese"), sometimes called simply queso, is an appetizer or side dish of melted cheese, and chili peppers, typically served in Tex-Mex restaurants as a dip for tortilla chips.
