When you file the I-129F petition, you need to prove US citizenship. You can do that with a copy of every page of your US passport or a copy of your naturalization certificate.

That should suffice for the consulate as well when your foreign fiance(e) interviews for the K-1 visa. You can always contact the consulate and ask them just to be certain.
