  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In 2-quart saucepan, heat cream cheese, beer and jalapeño chiles over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly with whisk, until cream cheese is completely melted. Stir in Cheddar cheese a little at a time until melted and sauce is smooth, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
