Beer Dip Recipe

Ranch dressing mix flavors this fast-to-fix mixture that's packed with shredded cheese and is made to go with pretzels. It's one of those snacks that when you start eating it, you can't stop! This dip can be made with any type of beer, including nonalcoholic. I've taken it to many parties and am always asked for the recipe. —Michelle Long, New Castle, Colorado

I didn't put the whole 2 cups of cheese in either, as one to 1 1/2 cups seemed sufficient. It's a bit salty, even after adding the extra beer. I don't mind though!"

Also - I served half of it cold & they other half I just heated up in the microwave in :30 increments, stirring each time. No one could decide if they liked hot or cold better, both were good & had a tad different taste!

Also for anyone who has experimented, can I use other dip mixes besides ranch? Like a creamy dill, or a country herb?"

"I thought this was really good but based on some of the other reviews I made a few modifications. I used 1/2 cup of beer and added a couple of tablespoons of chopped dehydrated onion. I think this is a really good recipe but I would cut down on the ranch next time since I thought it was pretty salty and I love salt. But add the pretzels and it really seemed salty. Either that or I'd add another 8 ounces of cream cheese to cut the salty taste of the ranch. I think next time I'll try using even a little more beer since it was not at all runny using the 1/2 cup instead of the 1/3 cup that the recipe called for. It's really worth making especially if you like pretzels."

"I have had beer dip many times and could taste that there was beer in it. This tasted way to much like ranch dip. Way too much ranch dressing for the recipe."
