What is Chili Cheese Dip?

If you haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying this favorite party appetizer before, I’m excited to share this delicious recipe with you!

Chili cheese dip is simply layers of cheese and chili baked together until it’s bubbly and hot. It’s then served with tortilla chips or veggies for a spicy, smooth dip that is full of flavor and ready fast.

This creamy, cheesy, quick chili cheese dip is ready in only minutes and is always a satisfying, crowd-pleasing snack to anyone I serve it to.

I’m pretty sure we can’t watch a sports game at our house without it, it’s always a big hit!

You can also put your ingredients into your crockpot to melt and stay warm until it’s time to serve. The slow cooker also can help keep it warm all afternoon if you’re tailgating.
