Born and raised in Wisconsin, known for their cheese, beer and Packers, I would be remiss to not share this amazing Beer Dip recipe that my sister in law introduced me too. It’s a perfect pairing with pretzels or Frito scoops and is always a hit at any party.
This makes a fantastic game day food, and I planned on sharing it again when my Pack headed back to the Superbowl, but I won’t dwell on that heartache.
The irony here is that I don’t drink any beer – never have, never will, and I don’t like the taste one bit, but that doesn’t stand in the way of me making this Wisconsin beer dip, a game-day favorite.
I’m always on the hunt for recipes that whip up quickly. Just a dash of beer mixed into this recipe adds an unbelievably unique flavor. It’s completely addicting, and makes a huge amount for any get-together. The longer this Beer Dip recipe sits, the better it gets, so make it the night before to allow the spices more time to blend, or at least three hours before serving. Refrigerate till ready to serve.
Recipe: Beer Dip
Summary: This creamy Beer Dip recipe is perfect with pretzels or scoops. This is one of those “lick the bowl clean” recipes.
- 2 (8 ounce) packages of softened cream cheese (My sis in law’s original recipe called for 3 packages of cream cheese, which is also very good, but we now prefer the consistency of mixing the cream cheese with sour cream.)
- 1 (8 ounce) carton of sour cream
- 1 package of Dry mix - Ranch Dressing (like Hidden Valley)
- 1/2 -3/4 can of beer ( Bud or a lager, full bodied beer, as opposed to a light will give you a better flavor)
- 2 cups shredded cheese (preferably finely grated)
- bacon bits, green onions (optional garnish)
- Mix cream cheese, sour cream, dressing, and beer til you reach your desired creamy consistency.
- Then mix in 1/2 cup of cheese, leaving the remaining cheese to sprinkle on top.
- Refrigerated overnight to let the flavors marinade or at least 3 hours before.
- Before serving, garnish with bacon bits and green onions.
- Serve with pretzels or scoops.
