Cheese Dip - The Ultimate Football Snack

>> Friday, September 12, 2008

Last weekend I was in Charlotte with Jef and we somehow concocted this amazing cheese dip that must be tried by everyone. It tasted like fondue and queso combined, thus amazing.

Ingredients

  • 1 beer can (you'll use about half so drink the rest)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-2 cups shredded monterrey jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream (just a splash really)
  • 1 jalapeno (chopped)
  • 1 smoked pepper of your choice (chopped) (we chose pablano, but any will work)

Directions

In a sauce pan on medium low heat add the butter and let melt, then add flour and whisk vigorously to make a rue. A rue is basically just equal parts flour and butter and just adds a thickness to the sauce.

Once the rue starts to bubble add a splash of cream, and about a 1/4 of beer to get everything off the bottom of the pan. Then add in garlic and a handful of cheese. Whisk everything together and wait till melted. Then add in peppers. You will basically repeat this step till all the ingredients are gone and everything is gooey and delicious.

The hard part is not "sampling" the whole dip before it hits the table.

It seems like this is hard, but its really not, just a lot of whisking and sampling till you find the right taste. I promise it'll make watching football better...trust me.
