Easy Appetizer: Chili Cream Cheese Dip

Filed under: appetizers, beef, dips — Emily @ 8:00 am

This easy dip takes about 5 minute from start to finish to put together. It has 3 ingredients and is really delicious–perfect for throwing together a quick appetizer for impromptu guests or to bring to a sporting event.  All you need is a microwave!

Chili Cream Cheese Dip

1 package of cream cheese (nonfat or regular), at room temp

1 can of chili with beans (or homemade chili)

1/2 package of mild Cheddar or Mexican blend cheese

Spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a microwave-safe dish. Pour the chili over the cream cheese and sprinkle the cheese on top. Heat in the microwave for approximately 3-5 minutes (varies depending on your microwave). Alternatively, you can heat in the oven. Just looking to heat and melt the cheese on top.

Serve with tortilla chips.

  1. This is one of my favorite snacks of all time. We usually add a can of diced green chilis too. SOO good.
