An Easy Crockpot Cheese Dip Recipe

So can I admit something? I ate this A LOT while pregnant. Like at least once a week. But I made it with non-alcoholic beer, so stop getting all judge-y. ;-)
Now that I am not pregnant, I love making it even more because I can drink the leftover beer. I even made Jorge a batch of it this afternoon to celebrate the kick off of football!

Not gonna lie — I don’t care much about watching football on tv (except for watching JJ Watts run around), but I LOVE football food. Give me a good spread and I’m game.

Easy Crockpot Cheese Dip Recipe

This is a crazy easy recipe for Beer Cheese Dip and uses only a small handful of ingredients. It’s classic and perfectly cheesy. It’s the perfect football food and can be kept warm in one of those mini crock pots if you are heading to a party!

Serve it with whatever you like…or just eat it off a spoon (kidding…not kidding). My favorite dippers are red grapes, apple slices, cubed french bread and celery!

    Very easy and so yummy! This was a big hit with my family over Christmas that they requested it again for New Year’s!

    Delicious and super easy! As I assembled my ingredients, I realized that the container my store sells is the 7.2 ounce size. I just used 2/3 of everything else and it turned out great. Next time I am going to serve it with cubed pretzel rolls in addition to sliced baguette.

      Hey Katie! So I was at walmart over the weekend and swung by the cheese section. They have the exact same kind of cheese – just a different brand. It’s called Merkts Cheese Spread – Sharp Cheddar. It’s in a tub just like the other one. Maybe you could find this one to use instead!

    Jessica, this is great! A good beer cheese dip is always wonderful to have in the arsenal! My husband and I often talk about “football watching food” & this totally falls into that category. Not sure if there’s a better description for it. :) Delish!

      I buy it at Publix! It’s next to the cheeses in the deli there. This is the same brand that makes the cheeseballs. It’s so good in this!

    I feel like a lot of the alcohol in the beer must get cooked off anyway…at least that’s what I’ll tell myself. :P SO CHEESY AND FABULOUS.
