Beer Cheese Dip

You've heard of Beer Cheese Soup I'm sure, but have you ever heard of, or tasted Beer Cheese Dip?  

I made some Friday for my weekly get together with the NPA club, and I think they liked it.   I got the idea for the recipe from one I saw on Facebook, and then played with it.  And played a little more.

Well, I had to taste test it.

And the fact I had to use beer in it, not the whole bottle though, was a good thing.   There was no leftover beer when I was done. 
Beer Cheese Dip

8 oz. Cream Cheese  (use low fat if you like), creamed
1-2 teaspoons Ranch Dressing Dip
1/2 cup-1/2 bottle of beer
4 oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Mix all that together, and put in fridge to let the flavours come together and dance.  

  Serve with pretzels or salty potato chips or gee, put some on a baked potato.  I don't know, I just know it was good, and really kinda different.

 But I think it could have used some fresh herbs to brighten it up a little.     Maybe next time, but in the meantime, I got to use cream cheese again.
