5 Layer Cream Cheese Chili Dip

5 Layer Cream Cheese Chili Dip

“There are so many layers of flavor in this chili cheese dip. All the flavors meld together as you scoop it out. Cream cheese mixed with chili and cheese is always a winner. Adding chiles and jalapenos are bombs of flavor in the dip. Jalapenos add a small kick of spice. Not only are the green onions a nice garnish, but they also add a little freshness to the dip. There should be a warning label on this because it's addictive.” - Kitchen Crew

“These aren't your typical sliders. It's hearty and meant for a meat lover. This bakes into a big, thick cheesy slider. Nothing skimpy about these. The ranch is a nice complement to the shredded chicken. The mound of bacon is held down by a thick gooey cheese layer. You get a bit of tang from the Dijon mustard. Brushing melted garlic butter on at the end is the perfect last touch. Serve these to friends and watch them disappear.” - Kitchen Crew

Can be easily doubled.” - Joelle

Hot Crab Dip

Hot Crab Dip

“Sweet lump crab meat is the star ingredient in this hot crab dip recipe. It's creamy, cheesy, and delicious. The seasoning is just enough to have a little zing, but not enough to take away from the richness of the dip. This could be a little on the fancy side or served at a very casual event. So good!” - Kitchen Crew
Homemade Pigs in a Blanket

Homemade Pigs in a Blanket

Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs

“At first glance, these look like regular deviled eggs but one bite and you're hooked. They're creamy and full of flavor. The faint flavor from horseradish sauce is enough to know something's different from the spice but you can't put your finger on it. The same goes with the Romano cheese. It's faint but adds a bit of savoriness and zest to these deviled eggs. This recipe makes a lot and is great if you're serving a crowd (or really like deviled eggs).” - Kitchen Crew
