My Mom makes this dip when we watch movies.
The first time I made it was in college, my roommate put together a little holiday pot-luck get together at out apartment. But I still had one paper to do before finals were over, and being me I had stayed up the whole night before working on it and was still working on it thru the party- until midnight when it was due. My Mom told me to make this because it is so easy but everyone loves it.
It is incredibly good. Dangerously good. I can only make a half batch about twice a year because I will eat every last bite.
Simple Vegetarian Chili Cheese Dip
8oz Cream Cheese
15oz can Vegetarian Chili
8oz or 2 cups shredded Cheddar, Co-jack, Cheddar-jack (Basically, whatever cheese sounds good to you)
Shredded lettuce (optional)
Spread cream cheese in an even layer across the bottom of pie or square casserole dish
Layer chili over the top
Sprinkle cheese evenly over the chili
Bake at 350º for approx 25min, until cheese is melted and chili is bubbling underneath
Serve with chips. I also like to eat it with shredded lettuce. Because I'm really into health food like that.
