A few years ago my husband and I would have his cousin and wife come over to play spades at our apartment. I would always make this dip as an appetizer, but we almost never actually ate dinner we always polished the dip off and that was our meal.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
