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!


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


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
