Chili Cheese Dip

Hot Chili Cheese Dip



1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 large onion, chopped
2 cups of your favorite chili (See Note)
8 ounces cream cheese (can use Neufchatel or low-fat), cut into 1-inch cubes
1 can (4 ounce) diced green chiles
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or more to taste)
Kosher salt, to taste


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. When hot, add the onion and cook until softened.
  2. Stir in chili, cheese, chiles and Tabasco sauce. Cook until cheese is melted and the dip is heated through. Season to taste with salt.
  3. Serve warm with tortilla chips.


Note: I prefer to use our homemade chili (usually leftover) in this dish. You can also use purchased; when I don’t have homemade on hand, I like to use Whole Foods organic turkey chili.

Gluten Free: If using purchased chili, check the ingredients to confirm there is no gluten.
