Oh me. This beer cheese sauce has lots and lots of uses, from a dip for pretzels or chips to topping hot dogs or burgers, or even over pasta. We served it warm with warmed pretzel balls and a few Tostistos Scoops. Everything disappeared in minutes! This sauce is so good you’ll be tempted to grab a straw down the whole lot in no time!
Also try my other version of cheese sauce. It has a nice horseradish kick.
