    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    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!

      I made this recipe for a potluck and it was a HUGE hit. It was very easy to make and super delicious. Thanks for posting. I will make again this weekend!

      I thought this would be a great crowd pleaser for my Halloween party. It got mixed reviews (my friends are very honest). Some said it was OK, others said it looked like dog food and wouldn't even try it. I personally didn't even try it b/c I didn't think it looked good at all. I followed the recipe exactly. I'm sorry. I think I might try it again w/ homemade salsa and homemade chili and will write another review.

      This gets more than 5*'s! For ease, taste and amount and the fact that has to be a people pleaser! I made one half of the recipe as it was only DH and myself. I followed the recipe exactly, using mild Pace Chunky Salsa and Texas Pete Chili for hamburgers and hotdog. I browned about 1/4 lb. of ground beef and added as suggested by Kitten. I added about a tablespoon of hot sauce. I love how you can adjust the heat to your own tastebuds without compromising the recipe. This is cheesy and delicious! You must serve this at a get together, you will not be disappointed! Thanks Kittencal! For Zaar Tag!
