I don't know what it is about it, but it's one of my favorite holiday appetizers. I don't know if it's the taste, the appearance, or what. It's just...great.
I remember the first time I tried it. It was Memorial Day weekend of 2001. My Dad and I went over to my Grandma's house. The usual first day of the summer season meal was laid out: grilled foods, fruit, salad, pop, desserts, chips, and dips. But one dip stood out: chili cheese dip. I'm sure they served it before, but I never ate it. But for some reason, I wanted to try it, especially since they told me that I should. So, I took a scoop, put it on a small paper plate, put a couple potato chips on it, and tried it. It was like Heaven on Earth instantly.
After that, I made sure that chili cheese dip was on the menu at every holiday function wherever I went.
If you want to know how to make it, it's simple: can of Hormel chili (Hot no beans) and Velveta Mexican Mild cheese. Mix them in a microwave or crock pot. There you go.
And I can't wait to have some with my Thanksgiving meal tomorrow!
I don't know why I shared this, but I did.
