Seriously Good Beer 'n Cheese Dip

Beer 'n Cheese Dip Served with Toasted French Bread and Bagel Chips.
The inspiration for this was one of those things I ran across someplace and hand wrote out to try at some point.  My apologies to whoever it may have come from in the first place.  It has undergone my adaptations and tweaking and has resulted in a REALLY good Beer Cheese, at least according to our guests last evening and my hubby!   Actually, I thought it was outstanding too.

Ingredients for Beer 'n Cheese Dip:

2, 8 ounce bars of room temperature cream cheese
8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 packet dry ranch dressing mix
3/4 C. beer
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (to taste)
1 loaf French Bread
olive oil
crackers or bagel chips

Add all of the ingredients to  the bowl of a food processor and pulse until perfectly smooth.

Place 1/2" slices of French bread on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.  Heat for 20-30 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven.  Serve warm or at room temperature with Beer Cheese Dip.   This would also be good with vegetables or crackers.  Cover tightly and keep refrigerated until serving.

Yield almost 2 pounds Beer 'n Cheese Dip.
