I thought there was a little too much cream cheese going on here so I only used one eight ounce package and instead of the chili sauce I used a can of chili with beans to give it more flavor. I then placed the mixture in a casserole dish topped with cheddar cheese and popped it in the microwave. Nice dip! Read More

This dip went so quickly and everyone kept on saying how awesome it was. I didn't use the green peppers only the red and i didn't have enough cream cheese so i put a little sour cream in it. It was heavenly. Read More

This was very mild almost bland. It also didn't resemble queso dip very well. It was very chunky and oniony. You couldn't taste the chili sauce at all. If I try it again I will be adding a lot more seasoning. As is the kids didn't like it and the spouse tolerated it. Read More

I actually don't use this as a dip but rather a spread to put inside of quesadillas and pan-seared burritos. It is great and really adds a special flavor to Mexican dishes. The bit of heat and creaminess are a lovely addition! Read More

A perfect dip for chips or as a spread for crackers either way it's a hit. Make sure you use large peppers so you don't have too much cheese. For those reviewers that thought this was too bland I used two teaspoons of Huy Fong's Chili Garlic Sauce. Read More
