Skinny Beer Cheese Dip

I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for new appetizer recipes for football season and the easier the better! I love beer cheese dip but beer cheese dip doesn't like me! I played around with a couple of ingredients to create a low cal/low fat version of one of my favorite dips. It tastes as rich and creamy as the real thing and my husband didn't even notice that it was low cal!

Skinny Beer Cheese Dip
Serves 6
Cal 120, Carbs 2.1g, Fat 9.5g, Protein 5.1g

5 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
3/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup light beer (I used Sam Adams Light)
2 tsp. dry ranch seasoning mix
2 tbsp. fat free milk
sliced green onions, optional

In a small saucepan over medium high heat combine cream cheese, ranch seasoning, and milk. Slowly whisk in the shredded cheddar cheese. Once smooth slowly pour in the beer. Stirring well.

Serve immediately with pretzels, veggies, crackers or any other chips of your choice. Enjoy!
