Simple Nacho Dip - Yummy!

"Hot & bubbly nacho dip, yet super simple. Great for a Game Day Appetizer. You can add or omit ingredients to please your taste. Substitute the chili for salsa to make vegetarian."

Ready In:


  • 2 (8 ounce) packages Philadelphia Cream Cheese

  • 12 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 -3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I use sharp but you can also use taco blend or whatever you prefer)
  • 1 dash cooking spray
  • 1 dash garlic powder


  • Spray glass baking dish (I use rectangular) with cooking spray for easier cleaning.
  • Place both packages of cream cheese in bottom of baking dish. Microwave x 1 minute to soften then spread to coat entire bottom of dish.

  • Sprinkle drained olives & spread evenly over chili.
  • Next sprinkle onion layer over olives.
  • Top with cheddar.

    I gave this 3 stars. I made this recipe for our New Years Eve party. My hubby recieved a copy of this recipe from a co-worker. When I made this I left out the black olives. We weren't crazy of this not being mixed together. The next day we mixed it together and it was so much better! So in the future I will mix it together and serve! Thanks for posting a good recipe.

    This dip is to die for....easy, relatively inexpensive and good. I often halve this dip and make it in a round, glass pie plate. When I'm taking it to a friend's house, I put everything together at home and wrap it (without cooking). Then when I get where I'm going, I nuke it for exactly 5 minutes and it's perfect! There is never, ever a drop left. Try this'll love it!

<p>Born &amp; raised in Northern NJ and now live in the NJ suburbs of New York City. <br /><br />I grew up on all the traditional Italian meals from my Grandmother's kitchen. Holiday's were parades of food of all kinds, from main dishes to desserts, but mostly I remember Gram's traditional Italian dishes around the Holiday's surrounded by all of our family. <br /><br />I love to cook everything now. I find it great to experiment &amp; try new recipes. Most of all, I love to entertain &amp; host dinners with family, friends &amp; have Holidays at home with my terrific husband &amp; our four legged furry goofball bulldog! <br /><br />===================================== <br /><br />Spring 2008: I was picked for the Pick-A-Chef Spring 2008 Contest by a wonderful chef: Chef #166642 who made my Recipe #293174 and my Recipe #285517 and lastly, my Recipe #287338 <br /><br />The link to the cookbook from that contest is: <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br />===================================== <br /><br />July 2008: I was just Z-mailed that I was picked for My 3 Chefs 2008 Cooking Contest by: Chef #829183 who made my: Recipe #307814 <br /><br />She Z-mailed me the link to the cookbook from that contest: <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br />=====================================</p>
