Chili con Queso Bean Dip


This is one of my all time favorite bean dips. This is always a hit at any party or get together. First time I ever had this was at a youth activity for my church. It was so delicious and addicting that my friend Kari and I would just make it on a regular basis as an afternoon snack after school. We did it the easy way by just throwing the cream cheese and Chili together in bowl in the microwave ( covered of course). I added a few of my own personal touches to this recipe to spice things up a bit. If all you have time or budget for is Chili and cream cheese though,  then that’s all you need to make a delicious dip that every one will be drooling over. This Chili Con Queso Bean dip brings back great memories of my teenage years every time I have it. It never get’s old!

Chili con Queso Bean Dip
  • 2 cans of Chili (I like the thick kind)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 small can green chilies
  • ⅓ cup salsa ( I prefer mango salsa)
  • Optional ingredients:
  • 1 cup black beans
  • ½ cup corn
  • 1 cup Kidney beans
  1. Soften the cream cheese a bit in the microwave first (cook for about a minute).
  2. Combine all ingredients together in a pot and heat over medium heat stirring regularly. Cook for about 5-10 minutes while stirring. Make sure all the cheese is melted and there are not chunks of cream cheese anymore.
  3. Then you can serve!
This can be served as a hot dip and it also tastes good as a cold dip with chips. You choose your preference.
