What beer should I use in this beer cheese dip?
I recommend using a IPA for this beer cheese dip recipe. It has a great depth of flavor while still being crisp and light. It’s one of our favorite beers on its own, and it’s perfect in this recipe. You’ll only need about half a bottle, so feel free to sip on the rest while cooking.
What should I serve to dip with this hot cheese dip?
A good dip deserves an even better chip! You can’t go wrong with tortilla chips here. I recommend using a sturdier chip to make sure it holds up against all that cheese, corn, and bacon.
You could also serve this with crackers, pita chips, bread dippers, or even some veggies (just for the illusion of health).
Can you save leftovers?
Absolutely! Don’t let any of this hot beer cheese dip go to waste!
If you somehow have leftovers (it’s really good and hard to resists), store it in an airtight container. You could also wrap the serving dish with plastic wrap or foil. Then store it in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
It tastes pretty good cold, or you can reheat it in the microwave or oven.
Recipe Tips and Notes
- Low fat cream cheese works just as well as full fat, but you can use either.
- I LOVE cilantro, but you can definitely leave it out if you don’t like it.
- Drain the corn before adding it into the dip mixture.
- Cook until the dip is hot and bubbly. There’s nothing in here you can’t eat cold, but you want to make sure you get the middle nice and hot too.
- In my opinion, the more bacon the better. So don’t skimp on the bacon crumbles.
Everyone will love this hot corn and bacon beer cheese dip recipe! Grab a chip, dip, and don’t forget the beer. Add a simple sour cream and onion dip if you want a cold dip option too.
