I love an easy and wonderful appetizer that’s perfect for friends, game day, and honestly any time you want a decadent treat. And trust me when I tell you, this couldn’t be any easier! How easy? Three ingredient easy. Ready? Let’s do it!
OK, it wouldn’t be beer cheese dip without beer. This is the most important part: pick the right beer. In my area of the country, I’m partial to Hennepin from Brewery Ommegang. You want something that’s full body, will shine through with the cheeses, and (like cooking with wine) something you would drink if you had the opportunity to grab a glass.
Take one cup of beer and heat it to boiling (and enjoy the rest while you’re prepping), add in one 8 ounce block of cream cheese cut into cubes and stir until it’s melted into the beer. Add two cups of shredded cheddar, continuing to stir until everything is happily merged into one beautiful blend.
I know I said three ingredients, but if you want to kick things up a notch, add a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce. But honestly, I think it’s perfect as it is!
Serve this amazing goodness with crostinis, soft pretzles, carrots… the choices are pretty much endless.
Have any left? Wait, that shouldn’t happen! You can spread any leftovers on crackers (because it will firm up once it sets) or it makes an amazing topping for baked potatoes.
