It has been a busy, but really awesome summer! Recently, I got to enjoy some family time when our relatives made an annual visit from out-of-town for our family reunion. This was immediately preceding a series of business trips for me, so I had a ton going on. I wanted to bring a dish over to Grandma’s house for us all to share, but it had to be something easy – and I do mean easy, because I was pressed for time! I loaded up HormelFoodsRecipes.com and used their “Advanced Search” function to pull up simple dip recipes. To filter the results, I clicked “Total time: 15 minutes” and selected beginner-level recipes. It brought up a few selections, but the one that caught my eye was the Cheese and Hormel Chili Dip. Two ingredients, one bowl, and a microwave. That’s all you need! Even I had time for that!
- 1 (16-ounce) box pasteurized prepared cheese product, cut into cubes
- 1 (15-ounce) can HORMEL® Chili No Beans
- In microwave-safe bowl, combine cheese product and chili.
- Microwave dip on HIGH (100%) 5 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes. Serve hot with tortilla chips!
This recipe was super easy to make, and it ended up being a big hit! Everyone zeroed in on the dip as soon as I set it down and chowed down. The best way to tell if a recipe has been a success is by how quickly it disappears, and this one seemed to go fast so I’d say it was a great success! I’d never cooked with this type of cheese before, and now that I see how incredibly effortless it was to create, I’ll definitely remember it the next time I have a party!
What do you whip up for company when you’re in a hurry?
