We used to make this dip in high school, run out of tortilla chips, and eat it with a spoon.  This truly is the most simple dip you can make, but it is incredible.  If you haven’t had this before, you’ll probably think “Cream Cheese????????????  With chili?????  I will NOT be eating that”.  You’re just going to have to trust me on this one.


  • 1 large (14.5oz) can of Hormel chili with no beans
  • 1 brick of cream cheese (If you’re looking to watch the calories, use the low fat kind.  You really can’t taste any difference)
  • Shredded Mild Cheddar cheese


  1. Spread cream cheese along bottom of pan.  It should evenly coat the bottom with no empty areas.
  2. Pour the entire can of Hormel on top of the cream cheese and gently spread across entire pan
  3. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
  4. Microwave for about 2 1/2 mins
