Have leftover chili? Make Easy Chili Cheese Dip!
One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to clear out leftovers by making something new with them. This Easy Chili Cheese Dip is a perfect example of how to do this.
On the other hand, this dip is delicious enough that you might want to make chili just so you can have leftovers to make this dip. Or make the chili, skip eating the chili, and make lots of dip. OR, cheat as needed and simply buy a can of chili to use in this recipe!
Easy Chili Cheese Dip
- 2 cups leftover chili
- 8-ounces softened cream cheese
- 1 cup salsa
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
- Serve hot or cold with tortilla chips.
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s more than a snack. This can be your entire meal along with fruits and veggies on the side.
Serve it hot or cold, whichever you like!
This recipe works great for my family because I blend everything up which makes a smooth dip without chunks. If you prefer a chunky dip, just stir ingredients together instead of blending.

Ummm, that photo looks just like nacho cheese… you know, the kind we’re not supposed to eat because it’s processed. Is it as smooth and creamy as it looks? Every time I’ve made “real food” nacho cheese dip (using many different recipes, including yours), I’ve been disappointed. It’s tasty, but the consistency is never like Velveeta. I realize this would taste like chili, but it’s the gooey creaminess that I’m after.
This is one of our favorites, but we also add about 2 cups shredded cheese. We serve it for dinner with chips and veggies. Yum!
Just wanted to add… your white queso, easy cheesy bean dip, and hamburger sauerkraut dip are in our dip rotation for Saturday night dinner. The white queso is the most requested, so those ingredients are staples here!! Thank you!
