Cream Cheese and Pork Chili

Arlene Diehl


This is our latest favorite here on the ranch-- I am so glad because it is sooo simple and also, so versatile! Serve it on tortillas, on rice or on noodles. It even works as a hot dip with tortilla chips. Simple, and simply the best! I have a friend who serves it to her day care kids because it is so universally liked! It gets rave reviews on my blog, also!
