Beer Cheese Dip

Favorite of Alisyn G, Grafton Branch;  Joe G, Hartland Branch and Brittany Thurow, eBanking

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (softened) cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • ½ cup beer (Alisyn uses a Amber Ale where Joe uses a Miller Light - take your pick!)  You can also vary the amount depending on desired thickness of dip.

Directions:

  • Mix cream cheese, seasoning mix, and shredded sharp cheddar on medium speed until blended.
  • Add a small amount of the beer and mix until combined. Continue to add beer until you've reached desired thickness of dip.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Favorite of Stacey B, Commercial Credit

Ingredients:

  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • Shredded Chicken Breast (1-2 cups; just however much looks good). You can use rotisserie chicken or make your own. Just don’t use canned chicken
  • ½ cup Franks Sauce (or your favorite buffalo sauce)
  • ½ cup ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (Monterey Jack is what I use, but any white cheese is good)
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

Directions:

  • Use a electric mixer to blend the cream cheese, chicken, franks, dressing, seasonings, and shredded cheese. I put it in a slow cooker on low, but you could put in a shallow baking dish at 350 degrees uncovered for about 25 minutes or until hot (if you put it in the oven, you could leave out half of the shredded cheese and sprinkle it on the top).
  • Serve with French break, tortilla chips, celery, or your favorite snack.
