Cheddar Ale Dip with Pico De Gallo

This post brought to you by CHA! by Texas Pete. All opinions are 100% mine.

A new restaurant opened up near our house and they have the best Cheddar Ale Dip.  The best part is the Pico De Gallo they add to it.

Hubby was having a few friends over Sunday for the Giants game and I decided it would be fun to try and recreate the Cheddar Ale Dip with Pico De Gallo.

And I must admit – the dip tasted AMAZING and was so easy to make.

Cheddar Ale Dip with Pico De Gallo


  • 1 bottle of ale beer
  • 2 tablesppons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 oz Neufchatel cream cheese (cut into pieces)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoons CHA! by Texas Pete
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Pico De Gallo (homemade or store bought)


  1. Step 1: Pour beer into bowl and stir to reduce carbonation.
  2. Step 2: Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir constantly for 2 minutes.
  3. Step 3: Slowly add beer and continue to stir.
  4. Step 4: Increase heat to medium high and slowly add cheddar cheese, cream cheese. Whisk until all cheese has melted.
  5. Step 5: Continue to stir and add mustard, CHA! by Texas Pete, salt, and pepper.
  6. Step 6: Pour into small bowl and add Pico De Gallo. Serve with soft pretzel bites, pita chips, carrots, etc.

The guys kept asking what was in the dip and  I showed them the bottle of CHA! by Texas Pete.  They all started pouring more of the sriracha sauce on every bite they took because they said it tasted so good.

Have you heard of CHA! by Texas Pete?  It’s a sriracha sauce that was introduced earlier this year and has rapidly gained popularity.  When it comes to describing CHA! by Texas Pete, everyone loves it for a different reason.  The blend of spicy, sweetness and tangy, exotic heat makes the perfect topping for pasta, pizza, hot dogs and hamburgers or the secret ingredient in sauces, soups and marinades.  No matter how you use it—in the kitchen or on the table—now is the time to Embrace Your CHA!ddiction.
