For the last 35 years I have always used a can of chili mixed with an 8 oz. pkg of cream cheese heated in the microwave until cheese is melted and easy to stir up. This was what my kids ate when they came home from school and were "starving"! Tortilla chips and this dip were a staple in our house! Read More

This was an awesome recipe. My family has never been a fan of chili and cheese dips (especially not processed cheese ones) but I wanted to give it a try. My husband picked out the Velveeta Jalapeno cheese dip to mix with it. It was delicious! We (4 of us) went through two whole cans of chili (with one full block of the cheese) in a day. The chili had a great flavor and you couldn't tell the cheese was what it was. We'll definitely make it as a side for parties in the future! Read More

As written this was ok- it was a little thick and cheesy for our tastes- it was also a little mild and we like more kick. I ended up adding a second can of chili (with beans) 2 Tbsp diced jalapeños and 1/4 C half and half. Perfection with tortilla chips! I'm glad I used the chili with beans we really enjoyed them in this dip. Read More

I have made this dip for years switching the chili for spicy chili and made it in my mini crockpot for potlucks at work. It is an easy no fuss appetizer. I have (if any left overs) put it on a omelet the next day. Great Super Bowl snack. Read More

I have been making this dip for years. I like to find Mexican flavored cheese. It always disappears quickly from party tables! Read More
