So if you’re down on your luck
And you can’t harmonize
Find a girl with far away
And if you’re downright disgusted
And life ain’t worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes
“Far Away Eyes” by The Rolling Stones
I’m watching the Canadian hockey team dominate in the Olympics, this makes me happy. Why? you may ask…because a win would result in a US vs. Canada final match on Sunday. While I don’t generally care that much about hockey, you bet your sweet bippy that I’ll be watching that game. This beer dip is a great big game dip, it is rich, cheesy and can hold up to all of the drama of a major sporting event (it did just fine at a recently attended super bowl party).
A big shout out to Tram down in the O.C. for giving me this recipe. I would suggest using a cheap beer for this application, the skunk and funk adds something to the dip.
8 oz. cream cheese
1 oz. packet of ranch dressing mix
1/2 beer (6 oz.)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
- Let cream cheese sit out to soften
- Add ranch mix and beer, incorporate with a fork until most of the lumps are gone
- Mix in cheese
