Step By Step
Easy Beer Cheese Dip
Okay, so…QUESO! This is the season of queso in my opinion. It’s cold, it’s football season, and there are oh-so-many parties that you’ll attend or host that need a delicious bowl of cheesy goodness.
This queso dip comes together in just a few minutes and is jam-packed with garlic and herbs for a flavor kick. If beer isn’t your thing, you could use chicken or vegetable stock for the base for this dip, but the lager beer does add a nice tang. Just don’t use a beer that’s too hoppy, as it will make the dip bitter.
Once you whisk the cheese into the roux, you’ll be left with one of the most delicious cheesy dips you’ve ever had. But the question then is what to dip in it! Of course, you can use tortilla chips, crackers or even crunchy vegetables. But just take a look at these quick soft pretzels!
I make them with Pillsbury breadstick dough that’s brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with pretzel salt. They bake up soft, browned and ready for dipping.
Enjoy the season of queso, my friends!
