Make the dip first. To a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, sour cream, Colby Jack cheese and beer. Mix well. If you’d like it a bit creamier, add in a bit more beer and mix to your desired consistency.
Add chili powder, garlic and hot sauce. Mix well.
Cover the dip and refrigerate it at least 2 hours to let it set and allow the flavors to mingle a bit. It can be served right away, but it’s even better when you let it sit, especially overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides with a spoon. Set onto lightly oiled baking dishes.
Fill each jalapeno pepper with the beer cheese mixture. You might have some leftover, depending on the size of your peppers. Just distribute evenly.
Bake the jalapeno poppers about 20 minutes, or until the peppers soften and the cheeses are bubbly.
Remove from heat, cool slightly, then dust with paprika or chili powder.
Serve. You can also drizzle on some crema or sour cream if you’d like.
