- 3 (8 ounce) packages of softened cream cheese (some friends use two packages of cream cheese and 1 – 8 ounce carton of sour cream, but it depends on preference)
- 1 package of Dry mix - Ranch Dressing (like Hidden Valley)
- 1/2 -3/4 can of beer for 3 packages of cream cheese ( Bud or a lager, full bodied beer, as opposed to a light will give you a better flavor)
