Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese (softened)
  • 15 ounces Hormel chili without beans
  • 3 tablespoons your favorite hot sauce (I use Louisiana Hot sauce)
  • 2 cups of finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Pre-heat oven to about 350 degrees.
  2. In a 11" by 7" rectangular glass baking dish press cream cheese evenly into the bottom of the dish.
  3. Empty can of Hormel Chili and smooth out until even layer on top of the cream cheese.
  4. Sprinkle chili with hot sauce to taste ( I am a wimp when it comes to spicy so I use about 2 to 3 tablespoons).
  5. Cover top of dish completly with shredded cheese.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes or until heated through and shredded cheese is completely melted.
  7. Serve warm with tortilla chips.
