Beer Cheese Dip

This extra creamy and tasty Beer Cheese Dip will become a crowd pleaser and can be whipped up in just 10 minutes. Made with monterey jack cheese, milk, beer, and spices on the stovetop, it is sure to become a regular at your parties. We like to use the beer cheese dip with our favorite dippers such as thick restaurant style tortilla chips, baguette slices, sliced sausage or bratwurst, little smokies, and pretzel bites. We love setting out a little cheese dip bar with bowls of all these favorites so our guests can choose!
