I found this on the Foster's Lager website - sounds tasty and easy to make. You can use any beer, I'm sure, but Australian beer would add a special touch of authenticity to this recipe. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2007.

My family really enjoyed this dip. I love the fact that it went together very quickly and easily. I added extra cilantro because I just love the stuff. It is important to keep the dip fairly warm because if it starts to get a little cool, the cheese separates from the liquid. Thank you for sharing. I made this for ZWT3

this is one of the best cheese dips I have ever had! I made this one and wow!!! It was easy, tasty, zesty, and 'comfort foody'. I looooved it! It is a great recipe for a dinner or birthday party! Thanks so much Shannon! I used Heineken. I'm sure Fosters would have been great too- But I love the taste of Heineken for any cooking that I do.... It has a great smooth finish without the bitterness that some beer gets from cooking it. Thanks much Shannon- I'll be on the quest this weekend to test out more of the recipes! :)

Made this for ZWT III. This was pretty good. I actually melted the cheese over a double boil because I have a tendancy to forget that things are on my stove and burn them. I wasn't really all that impressed with just the melted cheese beer combo, it got better when we stirred in the tomato and cilantro, but it was still missing something. Finally I just threw a half a jar of corn and black bean slasa and once that got stirred in it was pretty fabulous. Thanks for sharing!
