So since the Super Bowl is this weekend, I'm taking the time to post some recipes that will be enjoyed during the big game. I got these recipes originally from a comment on a Lifehacker post (with some help from a recipe site and modification) and tried the dessert one last year. This year I will be trying a chili dip for the first time but the dessert dip I have made before.
2 packages softened cream cheese
2 cans canned chili
2 cups cheese (shredded, cheddar or monterey jack work great)
1/4 cup diced onions (optional)
Preheat oven to350 degrees. Heat chili according to package directions. Spread softened cream cheese evenly on bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Pour heated Skyline Chili over cream cheese. Sprinkle diced onions (optional) on top of chili. Cover with shredded cheese.
Conventional oven: heat at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
Cream cheese chocolate chip dip
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
3/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
Cream together cream cheese and butter. Add vanilla and sugars. Blend until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate 2 hours and then form into a ball (roll in nuts if you want). Serve with graham crackers.
