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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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!
  2. Stir in the chiles, crushed garlic or garlic powder cilantro and seasoning. Pour into a warmed serving bowl.
  3. Before serving you can put the dip under a broiler to brown the top giving it a nice crust.
  4. Sprinkle with jalapenos and drizzle with taco sauce. Serve immediately with tortilla chips, or keep warm in an oven.

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.

Updated review. I tried this again after Kolibri made changes to the recipe and it was very good. Tastes like authentic Mexican Fundido.

This is so funny, DH thought I was nuts using his Leinenkugel Creamy Dark beer! It was wonderful! I also chopped up a fresh jalapeno for more heat and used fresh garlic! We served this with fresh veggies. Very very good!! Thank you SISTAH!!
