The Taste of Home Cookbook
New Revised 2nd Edition
Ranch dressing mix flavors this fast-to-fix mixture that's loaded with shredded cheese. This thick dip is made to go with pretzels. It's one of those snacks that when you start eating it, you can't stop! This dip can be prepared with any type of beer, including nonalcoholic beer.
