Warm cheesy chili dip is by far my most popular appetizer, my family has been enjoying this tasty dip for years.

A slightly spicy and twangy flavored dip that we especially like with just plain corn chips, or scoops. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and about 5 more to disappear…

This dip is perfect for holidays, parties, or just snacking.

If you are like me and need gluten-free products, the canned “bean-less” chili is difficult to find. So I suggest using your own chili recipe and leave out the beans and add extra meat. Of course… it would be okay to have beans in this dip too. I freeze small containers of my homemade gluten-free chili without beans, then I don’t have to make a big batch for a quick dip like this.
