Cooking With Beer: Chipotle Beer Cheese Dip

Well, the 2013 NFL Season is officially underway, and that means a few things are certain, Tom Brady will have another MVP caliber season, and many of us out there will be drinking a lot of beer, and washing it down with a lot of mostly very unhealthy food, in the form of chips, dip, wings, burgers brats, you name it.
So, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite things to eat while watching my beloved Patriots on Sunday, cheese dip! I love cheese almost as much as I love beer, and this recipe combines the two, and even better, it even adds a little chipotle to make it that much more enjoyable, and give it a little kick! So turn on the big screen, ice down the beer, and make yourself an awesome beer and cheese dip to impress your friends, check it out!


8 oz cream cheese
1 cup + ¼ cup mozzarella, shredded
1 cup + ¼ cup sharp cheddar shredded
2-3 chipotle chilies in adobo, chopped
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
¾ cup IPA beer (or pale ale)
2 Tbsp cornstarch
½ cup cilantro, chopped (plus additional for garnish, if desired)


Preheat the oven to 350.

Fill'er up!
In a blender or food processor add the cream cheese, 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 1 cup cheddar, chipotle chilies, garlic powder, onion powder, beer, and corn starch.

Process until very smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the cilantro, pulse a few times to combine.

Add to an oven safe dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Garnish with cilantro if desired, serve warm with chips.

There you have it, just the smell alone of this is worth the minimal effort it takes to make it, one bit of it, and yeah, you'll want to make it every Sunday (and maybe even Monday Night!)

Until next time, GO PATRIOTS
and bottoms up my friends
