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 Bean dip brings back great memories of my teenage years every time I have it. It never get's old!
2 cans of Chili (I like the thick kind)
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 small can green chilies
1/3 cup salsa ( I prefer mango salsa)
1 cup black beans
1/2 cup corn
1 cup Kidney beans
Soften the cream cheese a bit in the microwave first ( cook for about a minute). Then 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. 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.
