Step 1

Heat a small saucepan over medium heat.

Pour in the beer and allow to come to a boil. It may foam a bit. While waiting to boil, cut your cream cheese into 1 inch chunks.

Once boiling, add in the cream cheese to the beer. Use a whisk to stir until fully melted and combined.

Once creamy and fully melted, add in your shredded cheese. Add a bit at a time, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring with the whisk until melted before adding more. Stop when the queso is to your desired consistency. For me this was 4 cups but I REALLY like cheese. 3-4 cups should be perfect.

Once cheese is fully melted, stir in the Rotel.

Serve immediately with your fave chips. Enjoy!
