Guinness Cheddar Dip

Cheddar cheese & beer go together like, well, cheddar cheese & beer!

All of the ingredients are tossed into the food processor and blended into a creamy and cheesy dip with the deep rich flavor of a Guinness stout!


It only takes a few minutes to assemble and some time to chill in the fridge, and this Guinness Cheddar Dip will be the perfect way to start your party!

The cast of characters is 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar, 1/4 cup Guinness Stout, one 16 oz block of room temp cream cheese, 2 tablespoons half & half, 1 teaspoon dijon mustard, 2 garlic cloves, 1/3 cup parsley and 3 scallions

I like to blend the scallions, garlic & parsley in the food processor first to make sure there are no large pieces left in the cheese dip.  Reserve at least 2 tablespoons of the dark green scallion top for garnish at the end

 

Add in the shredded cheese and the cream cheese and pulse until combined

With the processor running on low, drizzle in the Guinness and half and half.  Add in kosher salt and black pepper to taste, pulse a few more times and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the flavors meld
