Easy Peasy Cheesy Chili Dip
This dip is great for a party, or a cold afternoon, or...anytime you really just need something to dunk your Wheat Thins in.
(*Note - while the bowl above IS lovely, please do not leave your crackers stuck into the dip for any long period of time. They melted. Thank you.)
LoLo's Easy Peasy Cheesy Chili Dip
Adapted from the memory of a similar dip her grandmother served at a family gathering 10 years ago...so she's sure it came from a women's magazine somewhere
In a microwave safe bowl, combine 1 can chili** and 8 oz. cream cheese*.
Microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, or until the cheese is almost melted and the chili is heated through. Stir to combine thoroughly.
Serve with crackers.
Can be kept in a teeny-tiny crockpot during the party to keep warm.
*You can substitute Velveeta cheese for the cream cheese for a truly tailgate-esque experience.
**I used Cattle Drive Chicken Chili.
