Chile Con Carne Dip

This is a very quick and easy dip to make that doubles nicely to serve your campsite friends. For an extra kick add finely chopped jalapeños peppers, dried crushed red chiles, chile powder, taco seasoning or almost any kind of spicy flavor you like. I like to use whatever spice or leftover peppers I have handy.


 One 8 ounce package Cream Cheese
 One can Texas style hot chile with no beans
 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, optional
 corn chips or other dip friendly items


In a pan over medium heat mix everything together and cook stirring occasionally until the cheese is melted and well combined. If you like a cheese topping, add the cheddar cheese at the end. This is traditionally served with corn chips but is also good with thick sliced red, yellow and green bell peppers.

You can also make this in a microwave by cooking covered on high stirring well every 30 seconds until everything is hot and the cheese is fully melted.

Serves: 2 to 8

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
