I first started making this recipe when I was in college. My then-boyfriend's mother made it and I fell in love with it. I've been making it ever since, and twenty years later I still love it. It is delicious, super-easy, and a huge hit at every get-together.
1Spread cream cheese in the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish (teflon or pyrex). I use the bottom of a soup spoon to spread it evenly.
If doubling the recipe, use a 9x13 pan.
2Next spread diced green chilis over the cream cheese.
3Then add the Hormel Chili, spread evenly.
4Cover with any shredded cheese. I use a mexican or taco blend.
5Bake uncovered at 350 for about 30 to 45 minutes. Check at 30 minutes. If cheese is not melted and bubbly, return to oven about 5 minutes at a time until cheese is melted and bubbly/beginning to brown.
