Easy Chili Cheese Dip - this hot and cheesy dip is always devoured. #diprecipe #chilicheese

I got the recipe several years ago from my mom. She made it for New Years Eve, and it disappeared within a few minutes. It’s spicy, but not so spicy that the kids didn’t inhale it. We love it best with tortilla chips, but it’s also pretty tasty with crackers.

Chili Cheese Dip is the perfect appetizer for Game Day, New Years, or any party!

Just check out that cheesy goodness on the top. Oh my. With both cheddar and mozzarella cheese, it is extra stringy and delicious. Be still my cheese loving heart.

Who knew that such a simple recipe could taste so good. This cheesy chili dip is simply delicious!

The cream cheese on the bottom is a perfect balance to the zesty chili and adds another level of flavor. I usually use light (or neufchatel) cream cheese because it’s easier to spread, but you can use whatever kind you prefer.

I have a 10 inch quiche pan that is just perfect for making this dip.  It has straight edges so the ratio of cheese to chili is perfect all the way around. But you can also use a pie pan or even a square cake pan if you have to.

I think this dip tastes best baked in the oven, but you can just cook it in the microwave if you are in a big hurry. And if you have any leftovers, they are just perfect heated up in the microwave the next day.
