This easy 3 ingredient creamy chili dip recipe is a great last minute party appetizer and travels well to a potluck party too.

I’ve mentioned here before that hosting or going to a potluck party is one of my favorite ways to entertain. It’s less stressful on the host or hostess, and it let’s everyone shine by bringing their own unique recipe or favorite dish.

I’ve exchanged more recipes via potluck parties than I can even count. And today I’m sharing one of them with you with a little help from Hormel and Evite.

This party dip is rustic and casual for easy entertaining. Other dips for casual occasions include sweet & spicy Doritos corn dip and the beer cheese spread.

One day a friend brought this delicious warm dip to a potluck party and I knew I must get the recipe from her. I think she was slightly embarrassed to say it only had 2 ingredients, Hormel chili and cream cheese! No matter. Those two ingredients combined to make a rich, creamy, and hearty dip that I’ve been serving at casual parties ever since.

Keep these ingredients on hand for last minute entertaining and use your microwave to heat it even quicker.

This party dip recipe goes together in a hurry and if you’re really pressed for time you can microwave it instead of baking it. Just heat on high for a couple of minutes, stirring half way through.

I added some jalapeno to the original recipe and it makes for awesome game day party food. You can also serve this for a brunch appetizer, in which case I’d leave out the jalapenos.

Easy 3 Ingredient Creamy Chili Dip

  • 1 can Hormel Turkey chili
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 teaspoons diced jalapenos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the cream cheese and chili together until well combined. Stir in jalapenos

Transfer to a small baking dish and cook for about 20 minutes or until heated through.

Serve with corn chips scoops.

HOSTESS TIP: You can easily switch out the turkey chili for beef chili, or chili “no beans” varieties. Eliminate the jalapenos if you don’t want any spice added.

I love serving this for the Big Game, but it also works well for a late brunch which is where I first had it.

    1. Lexy, I used turkey chili with beans but you can do whichever variety you like best – original, ‘no beans’, etc.
