Sriracha Beer Cheese

Sriracha Beer Cheese

I love spicy food about as much as I love dessert!!!  In fact, the hotter the better!  My proudest moment was eating at an Indian restaurant in college.  I ordered a Vindaloo that was so spicy, the waiter actually hovered to watch me take a bite.  He then admitted that he had never seen a woman eat that dish.  I was beaming!  I was wiping my nose as well, but boy was I pleased with myself.

One of the best days of my life was when I discovered Sriracha.  I use it on everything!  I love putting it right on hummus, in pasta sauce, on pizza and anything else I can imagine! It was a matter of time before I combined it with beer.

Beer cheese is such an easy dip.  It’s one of my favorites.  I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love beer cheese!  You’d be surprised how perfectly the Sriracha blends in with the cream cheese and beer.  It’s spicy, but it takes a second before you feel the heat.   This Sriracha beer cheese is so quick and easy.  You probably  already have all the ingredients in your kitchen (assuming you are hooked on Sriracha too!)

The only problem with this Sriracha beer cheese is, it is highly addictive.   And with only 5 ingredients, what’s to keep me from making (and eating) it all the time!  Perhaps YOU can make it and then tell me how YOU restrain yourself!

  1. This dip, Tanya, just made it onto my Super Bowl menu. I may not like it as hot as you do but I will keep a bit of the spice. And with only 5 ingredients, I just might not wait till the Super Bowl. Then I can double dip and there’ll be no one to see. :)

    • You will love it John! I’m sure I’ll be making this before the super bowl, like maybe tomorrow!

  2. Looks good! I used to eat super hot food too. I was in a hot wing eating contest down in Puerto Rico years back, all sweaty & red faced. Ever since my pregnancy I can barely eat mild hot sauce, I miss spicy deliciousness like this dip! Happy New Year :)

    • That is great Nicole that you were in a wing eating contest! A girl after my own heart! Maybe you could try this with just a dash of Sriracha!
