Cream Cheese & Chili Dip

While going through one of my recipe boxes I ran across one of my family's favorite dip recipes and I thought I'd share it with you today.  If you need a quick and easy dip recipe you can make in a flash, this is one you can throw together in under 5 minutes and it takes about 5 minutes in the microwave to heat up.  Fast right?

Tortilla chips
15 oz. can chili & beans
8oz. bar cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Spread out the cream cheese bar into a loaf pan or pie plate.  Next, spread the chili beans over the cream cheese and then top with the shredded cheddar cheese. 
Microwave 5 minutes or until all ingredients are melted and heated through.  Heating time will depend on your microwave's power.  I cover the dip with a paper plate as sometimes the chili can slightly explode.  Don’t be nervous, just cover it.  Dip will be very hot so be sure to cool before eating.
Serve this with tortilla chips or your favorite dipping chip or crackers. You can even double up the recipe for large parties.


Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing this easy to make dish. I need to make something to take to a party and I think I just found it. Have a great weekend.


  2. Diane, this is making me hungry! And I really like EASY! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

  3. Hi Diane,

    It does look like a great party dip. My husband would love this.


  4. Wow, your timing is impeccable...I made this night before last for my daughter and her friend who spent the night. I had to bake it in the oven though because my new microwave is not in yet. The girls loved it!

  5. This dip rocks! I made it before - my family went crazy for it!

  6. We make this often, but use the Hormel Chili with no beans.

  7. I'm definitely going to try that!

  8. Yum! This looks good and I like that it's a quick and easy recipe without a lot of ingredients.

  9. I would probably want to eat this one for dinner! I like that it has cream cheese in it!

  10. I found this blog through pinterest. I have grown up on this recipe but instead of using cheddar cheese we have always used mozzarella. I have always ate it by itself for dinner.
