Spicy Beer Cheese Dip
Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons allpurpose flour
2/3 cup whole milk
2/3 cup pilsner or light beer
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 dashes of Worchestershire
1/2 jalapeno, deseeded and diced, plus a few more slices as
1 egg yolk
3/4 cup (about 3 1/2 ounces) shredded monterey jack
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
Tortilla chips, for serving
To a medium saucepan, set over medium heat, melt the butter. When melted, stir in the all purpose flour and cook for about 1 minute.
Pour in the milk and whisk until combined and thickened, about 30 seconds to a 1 minute.
Pour in the beer and, again, give it a good whisk. Cook the sauce for an additional minute or so. During this time it will thicken slightly.
Mix in the Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, jalapeņo, egg yolk; stir until combined. Then, add the shredded cheese and mix until melted. Give it a taste and adjust the salt to your liking (I needed about 1/4 teaspoon of salt).
Pour the beer cheese into a serving bowl, garnish with a few slices of jalapeņo and serve alongside tortilla chips.
