Garlic Chili Cheese Dip Recipe

I would often make this delicious dip as an after-school snack for my children. They're now grown but still enjoy this easy-to-make treat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:40 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chili without beans

  • 4 to 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans

  • 1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Spread into a greased microwave-safe 1-1/2-qt. dish. Layer with chili, onions, garlic, green chilies and refried beans. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • 2. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 6-8 minutes until cheese is melted and edges are bubbly. Serve warm with breadsticks. Yield: 5 cups.
