Warm Chipotle Cheddar Beer Dip for Father’s Day (and every party after that).

June 14, 2016

A Warm Chipotle Cheddar Beer Dip perfect for Father's Day—and any other time you want to celebrate! This may be the perfect party recipe. | One Hungry Mama

Father’s Day is coming up and given that I’m never one to shun a good stereotype—well, only ones that give me an excuse to eat THIS—I’m making a Warm Chipotle Cheddar Beer Dip that every dad will love.

Because dads and spicy and beer, of course.


Okay, I’m joking about the whole every-dad-loves-spicy-food-and-beer thing, because we all know that everyone loves spicy food and beer.


This decadent dip is easy to make and so full of bold flavor that you might end up serving it on Mother’s Day and your birthday, too. Because this is pretty much a winning party recipe for any celebration.

Set it out for a gathering this weekend and be sure to serve it warm, or make it as a special afternoon snack for a favorite dad in your life. If you want to go really crazy, skip the chips and toss the dip—which is basically a cheese sauce—with cooked pasta to make a Chipotle Cheddar Beer Mac and Cheese.

Okay, NOW that I’m adding pasta, everyone likes spicy food and beer.

Yup, they do. And you can’t tell me that this isn’t perfect for everyone, especially Dad. (Nope. Not listening.)

Warm Chipotle Cheddar Beer Dip

Serves 8

*Can be shared with kids 5 years and older


  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup beer (lager or ale)
  • 12 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • Chipotles, to taste
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Add flour and, whisking constantly, cook until until the mixture turns a dark, nutty brown.
  2. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in the milk. Once it's all been added, return the pot to medium-low heat and, continuing to whisk, pour in the beer. Once smooth, allow the mixture to cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add grated cheese one handful at a time, whisking between each addition until smooth before adding the next. Once all the cheese has been added, add chipotles, as well. When sharing with kids, I like to add about 1 tablespoons of seeded and chopped chipotles; when not sharing with children, I add more! Cook for another minute or two, whisking until smooth, before removing from heat. Taste and adjust salt to taste; serve warm.


Though the heat will cook off the alcohol in this dip, you may want to consider holding off on sharing this with children at all.
