This is fantastic! My husband LOVES this dip from Chili's, and he thought this tasted just like the original. We enjoyed it with Chili's Salsa (homemade) while we watched football. I also made the "light" version using turkey chili and low-fat velveeta - couldn't tell a difference! This is a keeper!! :)

It doesn't taste ANYTHING like Chili's. It's alright, but it's not very good. It's too thick and tastes too processed. Nice try though.

I thought this was great- tastes a lot like Chilis and easy to make. I halved it as there's just two of us and there was more than plenty. Using mom67's suggestion of putting it in a mini crockpot made it where the dip didn't thicken up but stayed the perfect dip consistency! I just mixed it up in a normal pot in and poured it into the mini crock pot I had set up right by. (Don't leave in the small crock pot for a long time though- will burn eventually!) We had this with chicken tacos.
