Simple Chili Cheese Dip

Happy Friday, ya’ll!

I am super excited for this weekend because we’re throwing a mini-football-watching party with some of our friends. Even though I’m not a huge football fan, I’m all about having a lame excuse to throw a party or get-together at the house.

And what better than a football watching, chili eating, beer drinking party??

Of course the hubby is a much bigger football fan than I am, or maybe ever will be, but I still enjoy spending time with him and throwing little parties for everyone… even if it is mostly to watch some football together.

He always puts up with all the DIY and HGTV shows that I thoroughly enjoy during the week and throughout the year when football is in off-season so I think I can compromise when it comes to handing over the remote in the fall.

I don’t know about you but when I think about a football party, chili and beer and two of the things that come to mind. I don’t normally make a large meal for a party because everyone brings a little something but I do love to cook up delicious snack and side dishes that people can munch on while they watch the game.

Football doesn’t require a big meal and snacks and munchies are the go-to option for game days and little gatherings.

This time I am going to be some making some of this Chili Cheese Dip. This stuff is amazing and this dip comes together in less than 10 minutes.

What makes it so simple is this brand new line of ready-made chili that Progresso recently debuted. This chili is perfect for when you have a chili craving but don’t feel like making a whole pot of chili just because you have a craving.

In this recipe I used the smokehouse beef and pork flavor but Progresso also has a meat-free option and southwest style white chicken chili option.

Something for everyone and every craving that you may have!

Simple Chili Cheese Dip

So get your chili on with your first (or second, third, fourth…) bag of Progresso ready-made chili and get to cooking this chili cheese dip for your next party.

  1. We generally only use chili for chili dogs and frito pie, so any of their recipes would be a unique experience for us. The chicken chili nachos would be at the top of my list.

  2. Oh, I know what I will be taking to a family get-together this weekend! Your photos are great…thanks for sharing. Here visiting from the Table It link party.

    1. You could always use a homemade chili instead of a pre-packaged one and also use just plain shredded cheese instead of Velveeta in particular. Though Velveeta does make it super creamy.

  3. Oh my that looks so yum!
    It was footy finals here on the weekend. I’m not a big follower but I watched because Vicki (my YWF co-host) hubby’s CEO of one of the teams that was in the final.
    It was probably the best game of footy I’ve ever watched. The team scored a try (touch down you call them) in the last second of the game, second, literally! was amazing. I jumped off my seat it was that exciting. lol
    I’ll have to try this cheese dip though, I haven’t had a dip like this since in the US 15yrs ago, so I think I have to change that.
    Thanks for linking up to Your Weekly Feed. xx

    1. Hey, Kim! Yes, I’m not much a football fan either but since my hubby likes to watch it on the weekends, I will go ahead watch it too.

      Let me know how you love the cheesedip!

  4. This looks absolutely amazing! Pinned and tweeted. You always bring the most amazing creations to our party. Thank you! I hope to see you again, this Monday at 7 pm. It wouldn’t be a party without you! Lou Lou Girls

  5. I’m so making this! Except, I’ve never heard of chili in a bag, but we can certainly get it in a can. 🙂 And, velvetta cheese costs like a million dollars in Canada! Honestly, every time I visit the US, I go to Walgreens or Publix, and it’s so cheap there. I always buy a package and eat it in my hotel room. 🙂

    1. It’s amazing to me the difference in cost of living from here to there. Some things are so way expensive and some are way cheaper… doesn’t sound right to me. Anyway, you could always make this with homemade chili. =)
