We absolutely love dips of all kinds at our house. Nothing screams football Sunday to me like chips and dips (well, besides bratwurst!). I am a non-discriminator when it comes to dip as well. I love hot, cold, meatless, meaty, spicy, mild, cheesy, baked, in a crockpot...whew...the list could go on and on, but I will cut myself off there and end with boozy. Beer dip is really popular in our area, and served at most parties and sporting events. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to dress-up this dip and create my Loaded Beer Dip
One of my favorite things about loaded beer dip is that the beer flavor isn't covered up. I like to use a light beer for this dip, and wouldn't recommend using a dark beer. A dark beer might make it a little too bitter, and may give you an odd colored dip as well.

This dip is great for a Super Bowl or other sports type party. It is easy to make, and can be prepped in advance. Plus it is hard to beat a chips and dip snack while watching football!
I am still slightly bummed that our Packers didn't make it a little further, but hoping next year will be a better year for the Packers. I live in Green Bay and we are a smaller town in comparison to other with an NFL team so the Packers are almost a religion here.
This dip isn't just for football, but it is great for any potluck or party spread. Like I said, easy and make-ahead friendly. If you are like me and wait to the last minute to to decide what to bring this dip will speak to your procrastinating heart.
Also, let's be real, you can totally make this for yourself to eat as you binge on The Bundy Tapes.....or whatever.... Perhaps your prefer your television a little lighter and funnier. Not me, but you do you.
