My "go to" Appetizer

Everyone has that "go to" recipe when they need something quick and easy or the "oh no I forgot I was supposed to take something to the party" moment.......

For me, this is my "go to" Appetizer recipe! It's so easy, and SO delicious! Here's what you need:

1 block of cream cheese - 8oz.
1 can of Chili with Beans (unless of course you don't want the beans)
1 bag of cheese. I use a lot. So you can choose your amount on this.

Turn on your oven to about 350 (ish). Put the block of cream cheese in a dish (oven-safe of course), and heat the cream cheese until it's spreadable. Like this:

Once you've got the cream cheese spread in the dish, pour the can of chili with (or without) beans on top of that.

Put it back in the oven to heat the chili don't want it cold, trust me! (yuck)
Once that step is complete, sprinkle on the cheese, baby!

Once you've sprinkled on the desired amount of cheese, put it back in the oven to melt the cheese!!!

You'll have a glorious appetizer that you can serve with Tortilla chips!!

Yum-ola! and ENJOY!



  1. I think I could eat some right now, even though it's only 8:30 in the morning!!! Thanks Charon.

  2. Great minds thing alike. Your stand by is very similar to mind, except I opt for salsa instead of beans. I might have to look into melting my cheese next time. hmmm?

  3. OMG I have sooooo had this and LOVE it!!!!!!!! It is actually my "secret" not many people out here in the AZ have had this (except my in-laws they/we are all from Texas HA! LOL!!!


I hope you enjoy the recipes and tips!
