Easy Beer Cheese Dip

Easy Beer Cheese Dip!

So can I admit something? I ate this A LOT while pregnant. Like at least once a week. But I made it with non-alcoholic beer, so stop getting all judge-y. 😉

Now that I am not pregnant, I love making it even more because I can drink the leftover beer. I even made Jorge a batch of it this afternoon to celebrate the kick off of football!

Not gonna lie — I don’t care much about watching football on tv (except for watching JJ Watts run around), but I LOVE football food. Give me a good spread and I’m game.

Easy Beer Cheese Dip!

This is a crazy easy recipe for Beer Cheese Dip and uses only a small handful of ingredients. It’s classic and perfectly cheesy. It’s the perfect football food and can be kept warm in one of those mini crock pots if you are heading to a party!

Serve it with whatever you like…or just eat it off a spoon (kidding…not kidding). My favorite dippers are red grapes, apple slices, cubed french bread and celery!
