Cheesy chili dip

I know….it is as delicious as it looks! You can either cook it in a small/dipper crockpot (affiliate links present) and leave it in there for the duration of time your friends are over. You can serve it in a cast iron skillet with Jiffy cornbread in cast iron skillet. I think it looks cool this way with chips and my garlic pull apart bread beside it.

You could use ground beef or another variety like we did in our Crockpot venison chili. If you double or triple this you might want to make and then pour into a slow cooker to keep warm for hours too.

Chili Cream Cheese Dip

So you’re going to start by browning about a lb. of ground beef or turkey. Then drain that and add your red beans, a can of Bold MANWICH (it’s not spicy), 1/2 c. sour cream and about 1/2 c. cheddar cheese (or more if you want it really cheesy).

It doesn’t take long at all to make and can just sit on low and be reheated well if you keep it in the skillet, just takes a minute or so back on the burner, or throw it in a crockpot and leave it on low for the whole time. Serve it with scoops chips and/or my garlic cheesy pull apart bread.

  • Brown your meat and drain it. Add your Manwich and allow to simmer for at least 20 min. on low to soak up flavor. Right before you serve it add 1/2 c. sour cream and 1/2 c. cheese until it melts. Then right before serving it up add the other 1/2 c. of cheese until it barely melts on the top but don’t stir it in.
