Infused with the taste of beer along with a multitude of other delicious flavors, this dip is robust, ultra-cheesy and boasts the most incredible flavor profile.
My Beer Cheese Queso Dip is one for the books! But beware, friends – this recipe is highly addictive… and super delicious! Let me just say… YUM!!
I’m all about hosting parties in the summertime and this Beer Cheese Queso Dip is always a winner. I love serving it with a large platter of nachos and you know what? They disappear almost instantly!
How to Make Your Own Beer Cheese Queso Dip
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 12 ounces of beer (your choice)
- 1 cup pepper jack cheese (shredded)
- 1 cup sharp cheddar (shredded)
- 16 ounces Velveeta (cut into small squares)
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can Rotel tomatoes
- ¼ cup cilantro
- Salt (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
- Red Pepper flakes (to taste)
On a nonstick skillet, brown ground beef. Drain off any excess grease.
Add your beer of choice to the browned ground beef. Allow to simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add in salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, beans, all three cheeses, cilantro, and rotel tomatoes. Stir frequently until hot, cheese has melted and all ingredients are well-incorporated.
Serve hot with your favorite toppings.
I opted for Corona, but you can use any beer that you like.
The sky’s the limit with the type of cheeses you can use: provolone, mozzarella, etc. would work wonderfully!
You can swap black beans for kidney beans or a can of tri-colored beans.
You can also add a variety of toppings like tomatoes, jalapenos, avocado, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, salsa, etc.
The key to this dip is to cook it on low and as slowly as possible. I use low-medium heat, stirring constantly – otherwise it will burn very quickly.
You can swap the ground beef for ground turkey, ground chicken, ground sausage, chicken, pulled pork, brisket. You can even go meatless!
