Restaurants call this delicious dip chili pepper and cheese dip. Serve with tacos or nachos. This recipe was modified with the gracious help from mama's kitchen.

I was skeptical....the goo that was in my saucepan didn't look very appetizing...but what came out of the oven was perfect & sooo delicious!!! The flavor is excellent. I used Beck's Dark because that's what I had & it worked wonderfully. Better than drinking it, imo. ;) Thanks, Sista.

Directions See How It's Made
- Bring beer to boil in medium saucepan, reduce heat to low. Add cheese mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until all cheese is melted. Repeat with the remaining cheese - but do not boil!
- Stir in the chiles, crushed garlic or garlic powder cilantro and seasoning. Pour into a warmed serving bowl.
- Before serving you can put the dip under a broiler to brown the top giving it a nice crust.
- Sprinkle with jalapenos and drizzle with taco sauce. Serve immediately with tortilla chips, or keep warm in an oven.
