Chili Cheese Dip [and a Song]

[Scroll to bottom for a great song]

As promised in yesterday’s post, here’s the perfect, super easy appetizer to bring to game day celebrations. However, please don’t confuse it with the title of yesterday’s post, Chilly and Cheese Balls. Similar words, but very different meanings.  It is important to note that I stole this image from (which is essentially like a Sam’s Club) and they list the product as currently out of stock.  Seriously? Why of course, everyone has bought it up to make this delicious recipe. So it’s a total no brainer: Be cool and do what everyone else is doing!

I am proud to say this recipe was concocted by my father who first showed me how rewarding creativity in the kitchen can be (Thank you for that collective “Ahhhh.” It is rather sweet).  I’ve yet to find someone who didn’t absolutely love this dip.

This makes a fair amount of dip, but will likely go fast. Think way ahead, double the recipe and freeze half of it for future parties. Heats up quickly. Also, while I really like my meat, you could leave that out to make this even faster; it’ll still be satisfying without the beef.

1 can Hormel Chili (no beans)

1 can refried breans with jalepenos

1 can nacho cheese soup

8 oz.  shredded cheddar cheese

1/2c. salsa

Small can, diced black olives

1/2 lb cooked ground beef (optional)


1.  Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil, over medium heat. Stir occasionally. Serve immediately. Be very happy.

Here’s a great song from Local Natives to listen to while you strenuously pop open those cans and dump. Skip to 1:33 to get groovin’.
