Beer Cheese Dip for Pretzels
Ingredients for Beer Cheese Dip for Pretzels
2 tbsp of flour
2 tbsp I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
6 oz of lager beer
8 oz fat-free cheddar cheese, shredded
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp of black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt to taste
How to Make Beer Cheese Dip for Pretzels
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add in flour gradually while whisking (this is going to make a thick paste)
Gradually add in beer, while constantly whisking.
Combine all seasonings and add to the mixture.
Now you should have almost like a “gravy”, add in cheese gradually while constantly stirring.
Servings: About ¼ of a cup= 3 Smartpoints. Best Served warm.
Tips for Making Beer Cheese Dip for Pretzels
- Darker beers will have more flavor, you can always add more in, but 6 oz is perfect for me!
- To make the beer cheese dip spicier, add more cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or jalapenos
- If you leave out the beer cheese for pretzels, it will thicken. If it gets too thick add a little milk.
- Have leftovers? Store in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave, stirring often.
- If you find the beer cheese to be too thick immediately while cooking, reduce the amount of cheese OR increase the amount of beer
