Hot Sauced Kentucky Beer Cheese

This Hot Sauced Kentucky Beer Cheese was the first thing I made from the Cooking With Frank's RedHot Cookbook. It's a highly flavored dip that Rachel and I couldn't get enough of! Lots of punch from the hot sauce and the zip from fresh garlic was very nice. Note: I chose to use pre-shredded cheddar and no matter how many times I scraped down the food processor, my dip wasn't going to get velvety smooth. So don't do what I did, please do as the recipe suggests and shred your own cheese. I'm thinking room temperature cheese might be helpful too. Serve with celery, pretzels (pumpkin and bat shapes optional:@) and potato or tortilla chips. If your crowd likes zingy dips, don't hesitate to add this one to your list folks!
I had a little leftover and spread it on a roll with some ham, it made a fantastic sandwich!

Funny side note from the 'it's a small world' chapter of life: 
The author of this cookbook is a lady that has the blog Coconut & Lime. Back in 2010 when I started Pig In Mud I contacted her to ask if it would be ok to use one of her photos on my blog and she graciously said yes. What did I see that I couldn't wait to share with you?

I still love it today!!!
