Feeling down about the impending processed cheese shortage?

Pastoral's got you covered with our favorite recipe for ooey-gooey game-day dip!  Order the ingredients online, then add your favorite beer!

Game Day Queso Dip


  • 8 oz. Big Ed cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz. Widmer's 1 Year Cheddar, shredded
  • 4 oz. Chorizo Espanol, peeled & finely chopped
  • 6 oz. Your Favorite Beer


  1. Over medium heat, fry the chorizo until just crisping up, about 5 minutes
  2. Discard the excess fat from the chorizo; leave the chorizo in the pan, but reserve 1 - 2 Tablespoons for garnish
  3. Turn the heat down very low and add the shredded cheeses to the pan, gently stirring to prevent sticking
  4. Keep the pan on very low heat;when the cheese has barely melted, add about half of the beer & stir until incorporated
  5. Add half of the remaining beer & stir until incorporated
  6. Add the rest of the beer & stir until incorporated & smooth
  7. Pour into serving dish immediately & garnish with reserved chorizo crumbles and herbs, if desired.
  8. Serve warm with bread, crackers, chips or tortillas

**Remember to keep the heat on very low after you add the cheese.  Overheating it will cause separation & clumping.
**Stir constantly while the pan is over direct heat
**Keep warm for best results
