Beer Cheese Dip

I made this for the first time as a snack for Bill's surprise birthday party. I remember a beer cheese soup my mom made when I was a kid and for YEARS it's been on my mind. I was wracking my brain to create a Dude-Friendly menu for the party and "beer" and "cheese" were obviously part of that. So I went on a hunt, combining a few recipes I saw to come up with this.
A couple weeks ago, Bill mentioned he had never even gotten to try it. (People were shoveling this down like crazy. I went through 2 bags of soft pretzels and a bag of tortilla chips serving it. SUCCESS!)
I made it again on New Years Eve and we snuggled on the couch sipping drinks and eating dip after the kids went to sleep. It was awesome.

4 -5 green onions, minced
2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
16 ounces (one block) Velveeta cheese
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried red pepper flakes
a few dashes of Tabasco sauce
12 ounces (one can) of your favorite beer.

1.  In a slow cooker bowl, combine cream cheese, Velveeta, garlic powder, Tabasco and pepper flakes. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
2.  Remove from microwave and stir to combine. Add green onions and heat another 3 minutes, or until melted.
3. Remove and set in slow cooker on low setting and add beer. Stir well. Dip should be ready to eat in 20-30 minutes. Serve with soft pretzels or tortilla chips.
