Beer Cheese Dip Ingredients
My beer cheese dip recipe is made with simple ingredients. Each ingredient adds its own flavor and texture to the dish.
Let me tell you all about what goes into my beer cheese dip that makes it totally fantastic!
butter – Butter makes the dip creamy and smooth.
flour – Flour helps thicken the cheese dip
garlic and onion powder– Garlic and onion powder add a lot of flavor to the dish. Both also bring out the flavors in the cheese and beer.
paprika – Paprika gives the dip a subtle, smokey taste
cayenne pepper – Cayenne adds a nice kick of heat to the dip. If you prefer a beer cheese dip with no spice, simply skip the cayenne.
milk– Milk helps thin the cheese, making it dippable!
beer – You will really taste the beer in this dip so be sure to use a beer you love. I like a lighter beer so it doesn’t overpower the whole dip. I still want to be able to taste the salty cheese!
Dijon mustard – Dijon mustard has a tangy, spicy zing that is delicious with cheese and beer.
cheddar cheese – Cheddar cheese is salty and sharp. It melts beautifully into the dip and is tasty with the beer.
Monterey Jack cheese – Monterey Jack cheese is mild and buttery. It is a perfect cheese to melt for a dip
Putting all of these tasty ingredients together is super simple, too. Let me tell you all about how to make beer cheddar cheese dip and you will see how simple it is.
