Chili and Cream Cheese DipTo make Dip in microwave
In a microwave safe bowl, mix together cream cheese, can of chili (without beans, like Wolf Brand or Hormel), 1 can of Rotel Tomatoes with green Chiles, and one extra can of Fire Roasted Green chilis.
Use a hand mixer to break down the cream cheese really well before it goes into microwave. This helps the dip heat faster and more evenly.
Heat chili cheese dip in microwave for 1 minute, carefully take bowl out and stir, and then repeat until cream cheese is completely melted and dip is hot.
This process takes approximately 6 minutes, but be careful because most bowls heat up a lot faster than ingredients.

This dip recipe makes approximately 5 cups of dip. I accounted for 1/4th cup of dip typically eaten at a party, so serves 20. If you are going to eat a LOT of dip by yourself, you can adjust accordingly for nutritional values or what you need to serve up. 5 cups of dip is quite a bit and should work for most parties and crowds.
You can simply dump all ingredients into the stove top pan or the slow cooker without combining if you prefer and stir as it melts. However, the microwave version should always be premixed to help ensure even cooking.
