What Is The Best Beer To Use For Beer Cheese

The thing about any beer cheese recipe you will find it is versatile. If you prefer a more mild flavor, reach for a lighter beer. Or if you want it to be bolder in flavor reach for a darker more stout beer.

I went with Corona here for a lighter take. I didn’t want it to overpower all the other flavors in this rich and warm cheesy dip.

Can I Swap Out The Beans In Recipe

Feel free to leave out the black beans if you don’t want them. Or you could replace with pinto beans, chili beans, or even possibly kidney beans.

The black beans offer a nice Tex-Mex flair, but feel free to replace or leave them out if you prefer.

This warm dip recipe is versatile, so feel free to pick what you prefer on flavor.

Ground Beef Or Ground Sausage

Either meat works great in this recipe. Or if you want it to be meatless leave the meat out altogether!

I went with ground beef this go around, but I have done hot sausage in the past. It adds more of a kick of spice in each bite.

While we prefer beef with this queso beer cheese dip, the sausage is nice as well.
