Beer Dip

Beer Dip

INGREDIENTS

* 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
* 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix
* 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
* 1/3 cup beer

DIRECTIONS

1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and dressing mix. Stir in Cheddar cheese, and then beer. The mixture will appear mushy. Cover bowl, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, overnight if possible.

*Just a note. In my opinion, this "dip" is actually more like the consistency of a cheeseball."
