Mexican Chili Dip – A Crowd Pleaser

This Mexican chili dip could not be easier to make.  It is one of my favorite “go to” recipes when I am invited to a pot luck party.

The bowl is empty before the party even gets going.  It is that delicious!

Best of all, you can make it ahead of time and then just nuke it when you get to the party.  I promise you…it won’t last long!

Super easy four layer Mexican dip. Ready in a flash and a big crowd pleaser!

Take this Mexican Chili Dip to your Next pot luck party

I got this recipe from my sister in law.  She made it for one of our gatherings and it was gone in a flash.  It could not be easier to make.  It only needs four ingredients. I call it the four C dip.

  • cream cheese
  • canned chili
  • canned jalapeno chilis
  • cheddar cheese.
