Courtney's Unbelievably Good Chili Cheese Dip

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 6 mins

Easy to make, and you will never EVER have to worry about leftovers. The only worry you will have here is burning the roof of your mouth because you just can't wait to start eating it after it comes out of the microwave. Even my 4-year-old nieces loved it!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chili with beans (or without, if you prefer)
  • 2 cups shredded mexican cheese (WITHOUT seasoning)


  1. Soften cream cheese and spread into a 9x12 casserole dish.
  2. Heat chili separately on stovetop.
  3. Pour over top of cream cheese and top with Mexican cheese.
  4. Microwave for 6 minutes until cheese is good and melted.
  5. Serve with STRONG chips (like Tostitos Gold or Fritos Scoops. A thin chip will NOT cut it with this dip.).

I've been making this dip for several years now and you're right....never any leftovers! It's a good one for surprise or last minute guests too because with only 3 ingredients it's easy to keep on hand at all times!

My girlfriends NEVER get together without this dip! It is wonderful. I recommend using the Tostitos Gold chips. They are perfect for this dip!
