2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
1 (1 ounce) package
dry Ranch-style dressing mix
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
Try this instead: 2 pkgs cream cheese (1/3 less fat is great), 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1 pkg Ranch Dressing Mix, 3 stalks of chopped green onions and only 1/2 of a beer. Mix with a handheld mixer and chill for 2 hours in refrigerator. I promise you that this dip is awesome and I'm required to bring it to all parties!
I was so excited to make this recipe. There was way too much beer, it was more like a soup. It also tasted pretty bad. It went right into the trash - was not viable at all.
What a waste of beer! I had high hopes for this, but like another reviewer this came out like soup and it went right into the trash. A complete waste of ingredients. There was no way to save it. Absolutely awful - don't waste your time or money.
i had to tweak this recipe a bit to suit my style, but it turned out fanTAStic! i used only half a can of beer (the secret is to add and mix the beer slowly, a little at a time until you reach the desired taste and consistency), and added a large handful of shredded cheese, as well as some chopped green onions. i agree to also let it chill for at least an hour because the beer makes it pretty runny, but firms up quickly in the fridge. i was kind of leery at first, but one taste changed my mind. this was the hit of our UFC 100 gathering!
I also mix in about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese and green onions and then top the dip with some of the green onions for a nice finish- I love it!
Loved this recipe! I did take other users' advice and added 3 green onions, some garlic (to taste) and 1/2 a bottle of beer (6 oz). I also used a stronger pale ale like Sierra Nevada, gives a great kick! I used Hoegaarden beer and everyone loved it too.. I had 3 recipe requets the first time out. This is a keeper and will be at many more parties with me!!
This one was okay for us. Pretty salty. Scaled it back to 12 servings- used a bit less than half a beer. It did need something (wish I had a green onion) so I added a handful of shredded cheddar and a sprinkling of red Thai rub.
Completely agree with KimM's recommendation... I also find it helpful to use the beer at room temperature
