Janet and Laura’s Mexican Dip

Filed under: Dips, Sauces, and Dressings, Leftovers, Pantry Food, Snacks and Appetizers — ruralmomof3 @ 8:19 am
This version is more of a pantry “store bought” recipe but it is fast and easy and an awesome thing to serve to guests when you’re in a hurry! If you don’t buy store-bought chili, save a cup or 2 the next time you make some from scratch. Cook it down until it is thick and put in the freezer until you need it for this dip. Serve this dip with thick cut tortilla chips that can hold up to the thick dip!

Here we go-

The Recipe:

8 oz package of cream cheese
1 can chili (Hormel, no beans – is the preferred brand but any will do)
1-2 handfuls of shredded cheddar (or any cheese)

Laura’s directions:

Put the cream cheese brick in a microwave safe dish. Pour the chili on top of the brick, sprinkle with cheese and microwave until hot and bubbly.

Janet’s directions:

Spread the room temperature cream cheese into the bottom of a square cake pan. Spread the chili on top and then sprinkle the cheese. Bake in a moderate oven until hot and bubbly.

Note to Laura and Janet- I am basing this recipe off of my memory of having eaten it at both of your houses- if it needs correcting- please let me know!


God is good- all the time. . . . 40.gif

  1. We make this! My dad is the one who got the recipe from a friend and it’s pretty good. We usually do it in the oven. 🙂
