(note: Tailgate Tuesday posts are special features written for the SideLion Report from the gracious gals of The Thrifty Table. Check in every Tuesday for a new recipe perfect for that week’s tailgate party!)Here is a dip this week that is sure to please a Packers or Lions fan. I made this a couple weeks ago when our friend from Wisconsin, Alec, was in town. I figured he should try this dip out being from the land of beer and cheese. I think it was a hit and would be a hit at your next tailgate too.
Beer Cheese Dip
1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) packages shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup beer
1/2 tsp. dijon mustard (optional, if you want an extra kick)
1. Place cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, garlic powder and beer in a food processor. Blend until smooth. You can also just use and electric mixer for this.
2. Spoon the dip into a bowl and serve with pretzels, veggies, bread, or crackers.
