Soccer season means amazing and easy snacks for hungry spectators. Cowboy caviar with corn chips is spicy and completely addictive. And Knorr Spinach Dip or Veggie Pizza are perhaps the most delicious ways to eat more vegetables. Get big points with other fun party food ideas, all just a click away.
You certainly don't like sports to love the rancho beer and cheese sauce. It can also be a tasty snack for other events: shared meals, showers … to suggest some. Just because a recipe is perfect for Game Day (which it is) doesn't mean you can't enjoy it on any other day (which you should).
This beer and cheese sauce recipe makes a pretty big amount. Of course, you can split the recipe in half, or you could just invite a few additional people. Divide the cheese sauce into two bowls, so you can replenish the sauce when one bowl is ready for banking.
However, what is absolutely necessary is to have something excellent to dip: soft pretzel bites, melba toast, celery sticks, carrots, pretzels, or potato chips. Or even a finger, while everyone else is focused on the game.
What you need to make Beer and Cheese Dip:
It is very easy to do, but this is what you have to grab.

- Cream cheese. Three, yes, whole blocks, in fact, because the recipe does a lot of immersion.
- Dry ranch dressing mix. Make yours or buy the package from the store. (Important: Buy the dressing mix packet, the dip mix packet, which has a lot more sodium.)
- Cheddar cheese. Shredded (Crumbling your own cheese will give you better results, especially if you plan to serve the sauce warm.)
- Beer. You don't even need a whole bottle. Use your favorite beer: something light for a milder flavor, something dark for a stronger flavor. If you want to make cheese without beer, use n / a beer or even apple cider.
- Garlic powder.
- Chives or chives. Save a little to decorate.
- Pretzels, crackers, fries. Whatever you plan on dipping! (This is the best cheese and beer sauce for pretzels.)
Best Beer for Cheese Dip Beer:
While there is no hard and fast rule, there is enough beer in the cheese sauce for you to try it. Therefore, use a beer that you really like to drink. Lager, pilsners, and lighter beers make a slightly sweet and smooth sauce.
Stronger beers like dark beer, dark lager, port beer or schwarzbiers will make the cheese soak a bit more.
Will the children be at the party? You can also make the sauce with apple juice or apple cider.
How to Make Ranch Beer Beer Cheese Sauce
No need to cook for this easy beer cheese sauce! * This recipe is for cold beer cheese sauce, just like your favorite beer.
- The recipe works best with softened cream cheese, so let those silver bricks rest on the counter while you do something else.
- Then mix together the beer, cream cheese, ranch packet, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, and chives. Make sure everything is well combined.
- Try the sauce, then add more garlic powder if you think you could use it.
- That's! Chill the sauce for 30 minutes so that the flavors mix. Then you're ready to hit town with some pretzel sticks, soft pretzels, fries, even veggies.
* To make this beer soak in hot cheese, add the ingredients to a saucepan and beat over low heat until warm to the touch. Garnish with extra chives or chives and serve immediately. It tastes amazing on soft homemade pretzels.
Spin-Off Fun Cheese Dip & Beer:
- Roasted jalapeños. Fill the sauce in half a jalapeño pepper (scoop out the seeds first) and roast in the oven until tender at 425 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
- Cheese and beer sauce with taco seasoning. Homemade or store bought taco seasoning represents Hidden Valley Ranch. Add a can of green chilies. Serve with diced tomatoes and corn chips. Boom.
- Celery ribs. Fill the cold sauce inside the celery stalks for a low carb treatment.
- Toasted bread. Add 8 ounces of minced salami to the sauce, spread the sauce on a baguette loaf that has been cut in half lengthwise and bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cut into slices and eat.
