Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Pour beer into a bowl and whisk until beer loses its carbonation, about 30 seconds. Set aside.
  2. Place shredded cheese into the work bowl of a food processor; add garlic, dry mustard powder, black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, salt, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and flat beer.
  3. Process until smooth and creamy, pulsing a few times, scraping the sides, and blending for about 2 total minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning. If adding more seasoning, pulse a few times to mix.
  4. Transfer cheese spread to a bowl and sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper. Spread tastes best when refrigerated overnight to blend flavors, but it can be served right away if needed.

I did not have high hopes for this dip - it just didn't seem like the ingredients listed would magically blend up into something with a dip consistency. Was I ever wrong! The flavor is amazing, the assembly couldn't be easier, and the heat is just right. I used an IPA for the beer and the flavor really shined. Give this one a try!

I suggested this recipe to a friend on thebuzz, today. I don't usually make recipe suggestions that I haven't tried. The longer I thought about this today, I just knew I had to make it, as I knew the men in my family would love. Well, I was correct. It says: "Spread tastes best when refrigerated overnight to blend flavors, but it can be served right away if needed." Well, it wasn't needed right away, but that didn't stop my DH from chowing down with a few pretzels. I took a bowl out to my dad and he liked it also. I told them both to wait until tomorrow or Sunday (Super Bowl) and it would taste even better. I'm taking a larger bowl down to my son in Tennessee to enjoy, and I have no doubt he will like it, also. I used a Yuengling® Amber Beer for the flavoring. Can't wait to give this cheese dip a try on Sunday! (Super Bowl XLIX (49) New England Patriots vs. Seattle Seahawks)
