Here is a dip you need to try.  Rich and the flavor is delightful due to the little bit of light beer added to it. However, if you prefer, you can use chicken stock instead.

16 oz regular cream cheese (500 g)
1/cup Ranch dressing (125 mL)
1/cup light beer (125 mL)
  (such as Miller Lite®), OR chicken stock, OR cream
1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese (500 mL)
1 tbsp bacon fat (15 mL)
1 cup chopped onion (250 mL)
4 slices bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
  (reserve bacon fat)

In food processor, process cream cheese, Ranch dressing, light beer, OR chicken stock, OR cream and garlic.  Add Cheddar cheese; process.  Spread in a 2-qt (2 L) casserole dish.  Smooth the surface.

In frying pan, in bacon fat over medium heat, cook onion until caramelizing.

Cover dip with caramelized onion and chopped bacon bits. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until just before serving time.  Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until bubbly and hot.
