chili con queso dip recipe {it's superbowl party time!}

We had this appetizer on Christmas a couple of years ago and I fell in love. It was so delicious, I could hardly stop thinking about it until I got the recipe from our friends and made some more! It's now our go-to appetizer for holidays, football game parties, or Saturday nights. Not only because it's mouth-watering, but because it's so cheap and EASY!

Queso Dip Recipe

1 can regular chili (just beans, not meat--we like Nalley's or Hormel)
1 can jalepeno chili (same brand)
1 8 oz. block cream cheese (use the full-fat stuff--it's worth it!)

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until cheese is melted and combined well with the chili. Serve warm with tortilla chips.

We usually transfer the dip to a mini crockpot to keep it warm (I seriously went out and bought one of these JUST for this dip).

These are my kind of eats! They all look delicious. I chuckled when you said you bought the crock just for that dip because I did the same thing over Christmas for my buffalo chicken dip. Happy eating!

my mom used to make a dip with one can of Stagg Chili with the steak, and one brick of cream cheese. It was SO amazing, oh yum I could eat the whole thing myself and RIGHT NOW. (and i do NOT like chili, which probably makes me a freak of nature.) Sadly, they stopped selling that kind of chili where I am! I don't know if they sell it elsewhere, but I sure do miss that dip.
