If you are taking this to a get together you can assemble it ahead of time in a disposible foil pan. The success of the dip will depend on the quality of your chili, so purchase a good-quality chili, or use your own homemade chili, make certain that it has a lot of beans in it though! Have fun with this recipe, layer other ingredients in the middle if desired, the possibilities are endless with this dip! This is SOOOOO good and easy too! I like to spread a small layer of sour cream over the hot cheese, then the jalapenos and olives on top but the sour cream is only optional. DO NOT double the recipe in one pan, prepare two separate recipes in two pans.

Kitten you have some great recipes and this is another one! I made chili and doubled this recipe for DH, he loved it. I softened my cream cheese in the microwave and omitted the pickled jalapenos and olives. Topped with sour cream when served and scooped away with the Frito's. Thank you so much sweetie for posting a wonderful and easy dip!
