  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a bowl, mash the cream cheese with the ranch dressing mix until thoroughly combined, then stir in the Cheddar cheese. Mix in beer, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency (add more for a thinner dip). Stir in the seasoned salt and cayenne pepper. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hour.

Delish! Made the whole thing in the processor - took about 5 minutes. I didn't use any seasoned salt, and I'm not a fan of cayenne, but I did want a little "kick," so I added a healthy dose of...

I haven't tried this particular recipe yet, but have been making a variation for year. Only difference is no salt or pepper, but two chopped green onions mixed in. Everyone loves this dip!

This is always my go to appetizer for work functions, parties, and snacks at the house. Only thing different I do is add garlic powder instead of the salt/cayenne. I always get request for this ...

I make this all of the time. It's good with crackers, too. A little time add about 8 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon. My hubby's favorite!
