This is an easy appetizer that you can make at the last minute. I never have any leftovers. Serve with tortilla chips.

This was the BEST dip I have ever made. I have made it several times in the last 5 months. I have since given this recipe out about 10 times. I would like to say that if you like spicy dips you will want to add jalapenos to it. I have also added black olives too. Read More

I thought this recipe was only okay. The flavor was good but not amazing. I have recipe dip similar to this that I think I will stick with. If I were to make it again which I probably won't I would blend all the ingredients together and then top with the cheese instead of layering the ingredients. Read More

This is a great recipe that is quick to make. I added chili powder and onion powder on top of the chili. It was not a spicy dish at all so for the people who like spicy food I placed a hot sauce and a bowl of hot salsa next to the dip. Everyone was asking for the recipe by the end of the night. I also had to make a second helping because the first one was finished right away!! Read More

Very very bland...I ended up added quite a bit of cayenne just to give it a little kick. I will not be making this one again. Read More

I threw all the ingredients for this into my little crockpot and let it go all morning. I used reduced fat cream cheese Nalley chili (Washington reppin'!) a full can of the mild diced green chilies (isn't a small can of chilies a quarter cup?) and sharp cheddar. YUM! We've been snacking on it for the last hour and it sure is good! Great way to make a special treat and use up a few more cans out of your pantry. Read More

WoW Kim! Soooo addictive. My family couldn't stop eating this. This is wonderful dip/spread. When we ran out of Tortilla chips they dragged in stalks of celery...since I always have celery laying about! Great with celery...probably great with anything! Thanks so much. Read More

All the kids went nuts over this great Super Bowl or any excuse for a party appetizer. The kids and I love anything that even resembles mexican and this was just what the doctor ordered. We baked our chips in the oven to make them nice and crispy and also used chili with the beans as we really like the flavor they add. Thanks for a really wonderful and very easy recipe Kim!!
