Doritos and Beer Spinach Dip - 52 Appetizers and Cooking with Beer Recipes

Pin It Now!


And here's a favorite dip of mine.  A couple of varieties of melty cheese, flavored with a half bottle of beer, made rich and thick with cool sour cream and made pretty (and even an illusion of health) with a package of frozen spinach.

This is the stuff they charge a lot for as an appetizer at restaurants (or charge less and skimp corners).

Add the Doritos and you have a dip that party goers hover over.

Enjoy indeed!

 OK... here's what I did...

Doritos and Beer Spinach Dip

  • 1/2 Pound Velveeta Brand Cheese food
  • 1/2 Pound Queso Cheese
  • 1/2 Bottle (6 OZ) Beer
  • 1/2 Large Sweet Onion, small dice
  • 1 tsp Taco Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 (10 OZ) Package Frozen Spinach, thawed, drained and squeeze as much water as possible out.
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Bag Taco Doritos Chips
Cooking Directions
  1. In a large pot, add both cheeses with the beer and stir to combine. Set over medium heat and continue to occasionally stir until melted and well combined.
  2. Add the onion, spinach and seasonings and continue to stir.
  3. Add the Sour Cream to thin the dip. Add additional sour cream as needed for best dipping consistency.
  4. Serve heated and hot with Doritos Taco Corn chips and ENJOY!
