More Smoke

After making the w00tstout cupcakes last week, I realized that I needed more smoke in my life. Put smoke in all the things. Since I still had a little bit of w00tstout left in my life, why put it in my belly and turn it into pee when I can use the remaining beer in a recipe to eat and turn into poop.

I want to break free of the shackles on my life that keeps me doing beer bread and baked goods for the majority of the content on this site. I want more out of my beer. I need to spread my beer bread wings and fly to places I have never been before. Which is why I am using the remaining of the w00tstout to make a smoked chipotle beer dip.

I wasn’t the biggest of chipotle fan when it was still all the craze a decade or so ago. What makes chipotle peppers chipotle is simply the process of smoking said peppers. Great because smokiness is what I want. But our dried chipotle mix isn’t going to be the only thing on this recipe making things smoky. I am bringing back the liquid smoke. Liquid smoke has been my life for the past week. I have used it on everything from meatballs to cupcakes.

Dairy has been giving me a lot of problems lately so I opted to use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. However, in a last minute decision, I also decided to glob on the cream cheese in this recipe defeating the purpose of avoiding dairy. Well kind of. My goal is to eventually find a Greek yogurt alternative for all my recipes that require sour cream. The taste and viscosity is very similar and you get all that good protein with Greek yogurt.

Where There is Smoke There is Fire

After mixing your dip ingredients together, it is nice if you place the dip in the fridge and wait for about three hours to let all the ingredients get to know each other. However, sometimes that wait is just too unbearable and you have to indulged a little but of your creation. Post mixing of dip had the right amount of smoke and the right amount of peppers. “Okay, now to wait three hours before trying again,” I thought to myself. I knew that was a farce. It wasn’t going to happen. I tried the dip at four times within that three hour waiting period. Even though the dip performed better in mouth after that three hour session, I couldn’t help myself to indulge in those smoked flavors earlier. I recommend waiting, but I am not your mother.

      In a medium sized bowl, add the cream cheese and Greek yogurt together. You can use a standing mixer but I simply used a fork to mix the two. It would be wise to let the cream cheese sit out so it can soften a little bit.

      Once your base is mixed together well, start adding the additional ingredients one at a time. Start with the salt and pepper, then the garlic and liquid smoke, then the chipotle seasoning, and finally top it off with the w00tstout. Continue mixing until all the dry ingredients have dissolved into the dip mixture.

      Okay here comes the hard part: wait for 3 hours! Let your dip settle and get to know each other as this brings out the flavors. Serve this with pretzels, pretzel buns, or slather all over a burger and call it secret sauce.
