Cheese Bowl Dip

Christmas is almost here, and it’s my turn to have Christmas at my house this year.  Hubby’s family is coming here and we always have Chinese, but I like to make a little something to nibble on.  This year I’m making these little guys!  mmmm  tasty!
1 pkg. Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies
1 lb. velveeta, cut into ½” cubes
4 ounces cream cheese, cut into cubes
¾ cup dark regular or non-alcoholic beer
1/3 cup chopped green onions
¼ cup Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Dash ground red pepper
Dash ground black pepper
1 round (7-inch) bread loaf, top removed, hollowed out for holding dip
-Open pkg. of Lit’l Smokies & heat per pkg. directions.
-Melt both cheeses over low heat in a heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally until smooth.
-Add remaining ingredients, except bread then stir until blended and heated through.
-Pour dip into hollowed out bread loaf and serve with heated Lit’l Smokies all around the loaf.  YUM!

    We like to have Chinese during Christmas week too. Your recipe does;t translate across the ‘pond’ in England – what are Lit’l Smokies?


    Aww I like the flashback pictures, I think they’re cool. And I LOVE to host Christmas. 🙂


    Okay, you lost me today. Lil’ Smokies….my mom once brought these over for one of our Christmas parties to mix in with BBQ sauce. I got so sick the next day, and all I could taste was those little smokies and BBQ sauce.

    Actually, I like the cheese bowl idea just sans les smokies.

Thanks for the lovely comment!
