I’m a sucker for dips. Whether we are having people over for a barbecue, or it is a holiday I LOVE snacking and dips make snacks just that much better. I’ve made beer bread many times with different dips but thought once when I was making jalapeno poppers to take to a get together that some of the ingredients in those could be made into a dip form and the addition of beer may make it really good…..and it did!
While you’re out gathering the ingredients you need be sure to grab Chinet® Classic White™ All Occasion plates at BJ’s Wholesale Club and grab a package of these disposable Chip & Dip Party Trays too! Seriously, anything that makes cleanup easier for me I am ALL about.
You can throw your beer cheese dip in the center once you’re done, add pretzels and chips around it and it is definitely be everyone’s favorite snack before the meal arrives. 😉 I have made a version without the beer and realized that it wasn’t nearly as good and that went to the wayside. There is very little in it so you really don’t have to worry about the kids taking a small bite but just that 1/4 of a cup brings so much flavor to this creamy cream cheese based dip.
The base is basically beer, cheddar cheese and cream cheese which in itself is pretty amazing but add some diced jalapenos and WOW. If you want a mild heat dice 1/2 and if you’re into more of a “fiery” flavor just dice the whole thing (after you remove all the seeds) and throw that in!
I like diced chiles in a can and those aren’t spicy but really bring a wonderful flavor to it so you could try those too, or use both!
This is what you need to make this easy Beer cheese dip recipe
- Cream cheese
- Cheddar cheese
- Diced jalapeno and/or chiles
Beer cheese dip recipe
- 1 pkg cream cheese room temp.
- 1 c cheddar cheese grated - mild or sharp
- 1/4 c beer
- 1 tbsp diced jalapeno pepper in can with juice is best
- 1/4 c mayonnaise
- Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix really well. It is easier if you leave the cream cheese on the counter so it gets softer and once all items are mixed well put into a container and refrigerate for an hour or so or serve immediately if you desire.
It is a really easy dip to throw together and I usually have most of the ingredients at home, other than maybe the pepper and everyone loves it!
