Still searching for the perfect Game Day Dip?

Not to worry, I’ve got you covered with this recipe for Beer Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip.  Try saying that 3 times fast *lol*

This dip recipe comes together really quickly and will be a hit with beer drinkers, just don’t use anything to dark.  I love how this Beer Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip can be used in so many ways.  If you happen to have leftovers you can use it as a condiment for a sandwich wrap,  spread on sliced baguette and broiled, inside celery, made into a cheese ball.  You see where I’m going here?


Intentional Leftovers; cook once and use twice is a great Meal Planning tool:

Make a double batch, I call it intentional leftovers.  I make the leftovers part of my meal plan, even if it’s just snacks and then I get creative.  It’s a bit like playing Chopped in your own kitchen, and needing to use all the bits of this and that left in my fridge.  The only difference is that I plan some recipes to have extra, saves time and effort, plus it’s fun.

Can I leave out the Beer

Yes, of course you can, but then it changes to Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip, which will be delicious too.  I would add 1 Tbsp of minced garlic to brighten it up.

I often find that dip recipes end up being overly salty, but I have a solution.  I make many of my own seasoning mixes so I can control the sodium level as well as tweak it them to my taste.   In the Beer Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip I use my own Dry Ranch Dressing so I have included it below.
