Spice up your cheesy dip with a bit of jalapeño and green chili, topped off with some hearty ground chuck. The Terrapin Hopsecutioner balances out the rich dip with a crisp hoppiness and slightly sweet malty flavors.
½ lb. ground chuck
8 oz. American processed cheddar cheese
2 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
2 4-oz. can green chilies
½ ts. chili powder
½ ts. cumin
Diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, cilantro, for garnish
In a large non-stick skillet over high heat, brown the beef until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Reduce heat to medium-low, add cheeses and cook, stirring often, until cheese is melted. Add ground beef, chilies, chili powder, and cumin; stir. Pour into a heated ceramic bowl, top with a few diced tomatoes, sliced jalapenos, and cilantro, and serve with tortilla chips.
