Beer Cheese Dip Recipe

Man is this Beer Cheese Dip Recipe good, seriously!  When I make this dip we literally make meals out of it for like 3 days.  It’s super filling and loaded with so much deliciousness, which isn’t good for you, that you can’t stop eating it.  Now there are a few tweaks you can do, like scale back on the shredded cheddar and substitute for velvetta which makes it creamier but a hell of a lot more toxic.  You can also try different beers in this Beer Cheese Dip Recipe.  I like New Castle because it gives it that toasted nut flavor, but feel free to experiment.  Also just as a warning, this Beer Cheese Dip Recipe is pricey.  Think about all the ingredients you are making, it isn’t cheap, so make it to impress others 🙂
