8 oz. cream cheese, softened
¼ C. beer
6 slices bacon, diced and cooked
¼ tsp garlic powder
2 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved, seeded and diced

Mix all ingredients together except for the shredded cheddar. Place into greased baking dish. Cover with shredded cheese and crumble some crackers on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with crackers or tortilla chips.
This was a major hit at my family dinner on Sunday. Simple to make and just enough kick to be tasty but not overwhelming. Could add diced chiles and some sour cream if you wanted to make this go further.
