Oregon Beer Cheese Dip

Oregon has more breweries per capita than any other state. As a result, it’s  no surprise this Oregon-inspired dip includes beer in the recipe! Using your favorite brew (we recommend an IPA), mixed with McCormick® Cheesy Taco Seasoning Mix and Cheddar and Swiss cheeses, it’s tailgate-ready in a half an hour. Pretzels make the perfect dippers, along with crusty bread or chips.

Serves: Makes 4 cups or 32 (2-tablespoon) servings.

  • Transfer cheese mixture to warm fondue pot or slow cooker to keep warm, if desired.
