This dip is so delicious and so easy! It will be the most popular food item in your house. Goes well with corn chips, corn tortilla scoop chips. You can have small bowls for guest to scoop out a serving for themselves with the chips. I baked mine in the oven @ 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

I couldn't find skyline chili down here so I used some leftover homemade chili. I used low fat cream cheese and did include the optional onions. I did the microwave option, but the cheese didn't melt after two minute. I had to put it in an additional two minutes. Next time I think I will bake it in the oven. Served with tortilla chips for dipping.
