As the fall rains have blown in here in the Pacific Northwest, I am reveling in all the possibilities for comfort foods. One day last week, the hubs was picking up the kids from school on a blustery, rainy day, and I decided to whip up some pretzel bites and Beer-Cheese Dip for their afterschool snack. And, of course, I made enough for the whole family, not just the kids!
The pretzel bites are organic ones from Costco, and they are quite good by themselves (or naked, as we say in Casa de Chaos). But combined with this quick and easy Beer Cheese Dip…they totally rock!
Beer Cheese Dip
- 1 cup beer
- 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1. Pour the beer into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in the flour, boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat. Stir in the shredded cheese until it melts, then add the Worcestershire.
2. Serve with pretzels, carrots, or apple slices.
