Sometimes simple is best!
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (set 1/4 cup aside)
2 8 oz pkgs. cream cheese (softened)
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch (Original Ranch) salad dressing mix.
1/3 cup beer (avoid dark beer). Corona makes for a great tasting dip.
Chopped green onion
Mix cheddar and cream cheeses. Add salad dressing mix and stir well. Gradually stir in beer until you get a good dip consistency. You'll probably use just shy of a 1/3 cup. Sprinkle green onion and 1/4 cup cheddar on top and chill.
Great with veggies, pretzels and crackers.
