"This dip couldn't be easier! We had friends drop in unexpectedly, so I created this using what I had on hand. Everyone loved it! Make sure you've got some tortilla chips on hand."

chili with beans
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
shredded Cheddar cheese
Always a big hit at a BBQ. Made this a few times and change it up. Cooked this in a slow cooker and it works well. I use Mexican nacho cheese in a can instead of the shredded cheese. (The shredded made it too stringy in the slow cooker)I added some jalapeños, half an onion, and a cup of salsa. I served with corn chips and nacho chips. Had lots of good comments. Just make it a few hours before people arrive, set it on low in the slow cooker until hot/ warm. Easy to throw together. You could use homemade chili too.
Recipe is so easy but needed spicing up: I added 1/2 jar of salsa and chopped up jalapeno.
This recipe is a great start, but very bland. We added ½ jar of salsa and it still wasn’t spicy, but definitely more flavorful. Next time I would also add a 4 oz. can chopped green chiles or maybe even a 4 oz. can of chopped jalapenos depending on the crowd. I served it with both scoop corn chips and scoop tortilla chips. Now this is coming from a gal who prefers tortilla chips, but we all thought the corn chips were the clear winner. They are the perfect compliment to the flavors in the dip. Best served warm in a crockpot on low.
This is a 'no fuss, no muss' recipe; perfect for those lazy summer get togethers! The slow cooker doesn't heat up the house so it is ideal for even the warmest summer days! No prep time, just open a few cans and voila!, a perfect munchie!
Wow, this was fantastic! Very simple - almost too simple! I had no idea cream cheese was the "magic" ingredient in chili/cheese sauce!
Good dip, but I did add jalapeno peppers for a little spice. Thanks Jessica!
this was a hit - served with tortilla chips...everyone loved it and it was so easy to make!
LOVED this recipe! I've been looking for an easy chili cheese dip. I used Mexican shredded cheese instead of regular cheddar and it gave it a little zing but still wasn't spicy. This recipe will be a repeat for parties at my house!
