When I tagged this I didn't notice that it called for beer. I used milk instead because we stay away from any alcohol. I also only used a 8oz package of Velveeta since that is what I had. Made for 123 HITS

I'm giving this 5 stars for the "uniqueness" of this recipe. I've never had a cheese dip with beer in it. I don't like things too hot so we used a mild salsa. It was better for my BH just to add the hot sauce for himself. I felt after tasting the dip as via the recipe that it needed more salsa. I felt the balance should have been about even between salsa & cheese. After adding more salsa we tried again, much better. Even the refried bean flavor still was noticable. This recipe made enough for us to enjoy for a couple of days, which we will. Thanks for posting another great recipe Kittencal!
