This was an old Texas favorite, easy to make and addictive! My husband and I would have it as a meal when we were newlyweds while watching old movies.


  1. Spread softened cream cheese in a deep glass pie dish.
  2. Spread chili on top and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
  3. Heat through either in microwave (make sure you cover it!) or oven at 350 degrees.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips.

Excellent, easy and everyone loves this. What a HUGE hit with hungry teenagers! If you like it with a kick, sprinkle the top with cayenne or red pepper flakes. Shredded Mexican cheese (a four-cheese blend) or sharp cheddar is also good, as is Hormel with beans. I agree with M-o-5 that Hormel is the best brand for this dip. Try it, it's the BEST and fast!
