Quick and Easy Dip

Saturday night several people came over to my house to watch the Mizzou Tigers' disastrous loss to Texas Tech. In addition to discussing what an awful mascot a gun-slinging cowboy is for young children, we also ate some delicious food! Melanie made a dip she called "Beer Dip." It was so simple and yummy, I just had to share. If you have a last minute get together with no time to spare, this is a go-to recipe to keep in the kitchen drawer.

Beer Dip
Fire Level: Yellow
  • 2 Packages Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/3 to 1/2 a beer (depending on how runny or thick you want your dip)
  • 1 Packet Ranch Dressing
  • 1 1/2 Cups finely shredded cheddar cheese

STEP 1: Create your base
Mash up your cream cheese. If you have a food processor, this is the perfect time to use the "plastic blade" they gave you in the box that is gathering dust in your cabinet. Otherwise, just use a wooden spoon. While you are mashing, add in your beer until you have the consistency you want.

STEP 2: Add the rest
Add in the other two ingredients.

STEP 3: Enjoy!
Eat it up with pretzels, pretzel chips, pita chips, tortilla chips... whatever you want.

Other Options
I think this dip would be really yummy, and a bit spicier, if you add a can of diced green chiles!
