Quick 'n easy: taco dip recipe
Taco Dip
  • 1 8-oz pkg of cream cheese (low fat may be substituted)
  • 1 8-oz can of Hormel chili, no beans (turkey chili may be substituted)
  • 2-3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

1. Spread softened cream cheese over bottom of glass pie pan

2. Next, spread Hormel chili over the top of the cream cheese

3. Top with the 2-3 cups of cheese (I like a lot of cheese!)

4. Nuke for about 3-5 minutes and serve with tortilla chips. El Ranchero Mexican chips seem to be the best.

This is my fall-back recipe whenever I need something quick & yummy. It's always a huge hit. In fact a bunch of my girlfriends and I are getting together this weekend, and I'm bringing this to the party. Well this, and chocolate cake. To be honest I could eat just this though and be perfectly happy.

Have any quick 'n easy recipes that work every time?



  1. It's one of my favorites, and along the same lines:

    Pizza Dip
    Oven preheated to 350 degrees

    1 block of softened cream cheese (we use low fat)
    Small jar of Pizza Sauce
    Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (we use 2%, it melts better)
    One baguette sliced into pieces

    In a small baking dish (I use a small pyrex) spread the softened cream cheese using a spatula.
    Pour pizza sauce on top of cream cheese. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of pizza sauce. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cream cheese bubbles.

    Serve with baugettes.

    For variety you can add chopped green peppers or pepperoni or whatever you like on your pizza.

    It's delicious. It's our favorite football watching snack.

  2. Explain to me again why I'd have to share this with anyone else after I made it? It seems like a single serving kinda dish from where I sit... :)

  3. Sounds good!

  4. Stacy your recipe sounds really good and I am going to have to try it out.

    MaryKate yours sounds just as good, and I can see me trying it as well.

    Thanks for the wonderful suggestions.

  5. Yummy recipes!!

    How about Dundee Dip

    8 oz. Cream Cheese softened
    1 pounds ground sausage, browned
    8 oz. jar of salsa - any type

    Mix all together and serve with either tortilla chips or, even better, Fritos Scoops!

  6. I just want to let Stacy, Marykate and Jenster know that I copied all of your recipes and plan on making them during my Sunday football veg. session.

    I love football and hate cooking so these receipes sound like something that I can make and convince my kids to be happy with.

  7. Oh, seriously. Yum.

    My so simple, and everyone loves it recipe is Peach Cobbler.

    1 box yellow cake mix
    1 stick of butter (sub marg if you want)
    2 15 oz cans sliced (or diced)peaches
    brown sugar and cinnamon to taste

    1. Preheat oven to 350.
    2. Place the peaches in a 9x13 dish (grease it if you want, but not necessary).
    3. Add small amt of brown sugar and cinnamon to taste.
    4. Pour cake mix over the top. (I usually gently mix just a smidgen of it in, but the cake mix is going to make the cobbler topping, so don't get carried away!)
    5. Pour 1 stick of melted butter over the top.
    6. Bake for 30-45 minutes at 350, or until the top is nice and golden brown.

    Unfortunately, I'm not a measurer. I used to have exact measurements for brown sugar & cinnamon for this recipe, and at some point, I discovered S&W diced brown sugar & cinnamon peaches. Can you say LAZY? I loved it! Also, some like to dice the peaches, some leave them in slices.

    I've also now substituted the cake mix made with Splenda, and used low cal margarine. No need to feel guilty, and it tastes just as good!

  8. Oh, forgot to mention... top that cobbler with ice cream or whipped cream (Cool Whip or the canned kind makes it even easier!)

  9. Okay... you ladies host a potluck party. I'll bring wine, beer, soda, whatever. YUMMM!
