This is a fantastic dip for chips and also makes a wicked sauce for enchiladas! Serve this for your next get together, everyone will LOVE this I promise! Even better, you can use the Mexican blend of Velveeta cheese for this if desired. Use a good-quality mild cheddar cheese such a Cracker Barrel or Black Diamond brand. Adjust the hot sauce to taste. The dip will thicken as it cools, it is best served from a small crockpot to keep warm you could even cook the complete recipe in the crockpot! Since the store-bought canned chili has very little added ground beef, you could always add in more cooked ground beef is desired!
First time I had this chili dip is when an old and dear friend of mine served it at a gathering at her home. I LOVED IT! It is so yummy. It's a dip that is layered and baked. She would sometimes make it for her finicky kids for dinner and they would always gobble it up. It is one of the best chili dips around.
My husband's family loves traditional Chex Party Mix which is a favorite at our Thanksmas celebration every year. My husband was craving something sweeter and asked for Maple Chex mix instead. I tried the only recipe I could find online but wasn't completely pleased with the results since the recipe really didn't coat the chex very well. I made a few changes to increase the coating. Very rich, very yummy. Definitely not for those on a diet.
My son's girlfriend brought this over one holiday. I made it just last night for a party and so many people asked me for the recipe. It's great...quick.....and easy!!! Would be great for the holidays as you could include red/green M&M's too!
Yummy variation on party mix. For garlic and dill lovers. You can substitute Chex corn or rice cereal for the Crispix - I decide between Chex and Crispix based on what's on sale. NOTE: Based on feedback received, in Jan. 09 I reduced the amount of garlic powder to 1/2 tsp. It is still plenty of garlic flavor but not as overpowering. :)
