File this under Super Quick Fix!
This is my go-to appetizer.
It combines three of my favorite things in a recipe:
fast, cheap, and tasty!
And, as if it could get any better,
the ingredients store well so it's easy to keep on hand
for the unexpected, hungry crowd.
1 can of chili (beans or no beans)
1 package of cream cheese*
1 bag of chips (camera shy)
Cut cream cheese into pieces.
Place in microwave-safe dish.
Microwave it for 1 minute.
Dump in can of chili.
Nuke for 30 seconds.
Another 30 seconds in the mic.
Continue microwaving at 30 second intervals
until well blended and smooth.
Serve warm with chips.
Bask in the glow of admiration
of family and friends.
See? Easy peasy.
*An unopened brick of cream cheese
keeps in the fridge for several weeks.
