Cheeseburger Beer Dip

Quick, easy and packed with all the best football flavors we fans love, it's a simple choice when debating what to serve your hungry guests when they arrive ready to cheer.

We're not sure about you, but football games - be it pre-season, regular season or post-season - aren't complete without a few classic football foods!

We love our buffalo wings and pigs-in-a-blanket as much as anyone does, especially when paired with a nice cold beer. Recently, however, the big football food recipe at our parties is this cheesy dip.

  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 pounds sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 cups beer
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 pounds cooked, crumbled ground meat
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

Note: Makes 4 cups


Toss cornstarch with cheese until coated.

Combine beer and butter in medium saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat. Add a handful of cheese into the boiling beer and stir until cheese is melted. Continue adding cheese by the handful, stirring constantly, over low heat until cheese becomes creamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in cooked meat and tomatoes and remove from heat.

Transfer the cheese mixture into a fondue pot and cover for transport to the tailgate site. Warm the dip with a tailgate-safe heating source under your fondue pot and serve with bread or tortilla chips as dipping items.
