RECIPE: Chili Nacho Dip

This portable 3 ingredient dip makes a tasty dish-to-pass for holiday parties and sports watching! 



I have taken this dip to multiple get-togethers over the years. It's always a big hit! It can be made up beforehand and heated at your destination. Especially handy for those of us who drive an hour or more to friends' and relatives' homes!

INGREDIENTS:

2 8 oz. Pkg Cream Cheese, softened
2 Cans Chili, No Beans
8 oz Pkg Shred Cheddar Cheese

PREPARATION:

Spread softened cream cheese evenly in the bottom of a rectangular baking dish. (You can lightly heat the cream cheese in the dish in the oven for a few minutes to improve spreadability, using a rubber spatula works very well.) Layer chili over cream cheese, lightly spread over the cheese, sprinkle cheddar cheese evenly on top. Bake on 350 for about 15-20 minutes, or until cheddar topping is bubbly and melted. Serve with nacho chips.

*For portability, a baking dish with a lid and insulated carrier is recommended. They are relatively inexpensive. This one's identical to mine: Pyrex Portable 4-Piece Set
