package (2.5 oz) thinly sliced lean ham
teaspoon coarse salt, if desired
oz cream cheese (from 8-oz package), softened
cup regular or nonalcoholic beer
tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing

Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown on top and golden brown on bottom.
Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, beat cream cheese, beer and mayonnaise with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Stir in cheese blend. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once, until heated through. Serve dip with pretzels.
