Cheesy Chip Dip

My husband and I spent the first 5 years of our marriage overseas with the Air Force.  We were stationed in the countries of Turkey and Germany.  Overseas, we were able to get some American TV through the military station.  Sports would come on at very odd times and it wasn’t always a guarantee we would be able to watch the games at all.  This was difficult on a football lovin’ gal like myself.  When I met my husband, I was a die hard 49ers fan!  He was a die hard Cowboys fan.  I drank Pepsi.  He drank Coke.  Somehow, we managed to get over our differences, and we are still happily married 19 years later!  Neither of us watch football any longer, I don’t drink soda, and he still likes his Coke.  All is well.

We had an amazing group of friends in Germany and we would frequently gather at our house for a NASCAR party, which meant all of us getting together for some food and NASCAR.  Half the time, the NASCAR race never came on, but it didn’t stop us from having our parties.  We have such fond memories of those times. 

NASCAR may not have been a staple at these parties, but Cheesy Chip Dip sure was!  This is still my most requested item to bring when we are invited to an event. 

If you have been around here at all, you know I am not a fan of processed, chemical laden food.  WARNING: This includes processed, chemical laden food.  If that bothers you, you better find another recipe to check out. 

See, I have this theory.  It goes like this, eat healthy most of the time, and don’t worry about it too much when we don’t.  We eat homemade, unprocessed, high quality food most of the time.  We indulge in biscuits made with “kill-ya” flour and this Cheesy Chip dip.  My husband and I enjoy those things and I have not found a healthy alternative that satisfies the same way.   So, the recipes stay!  We eat them and don’t worry about it.

Cheesy Chip Dip
1 lb hamburger, fried and drained
2 lb block of Velveeta
2 batches Cream of Whatever Soup or 2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans Hormel meat only chili
Lots of tortilla chips

Fry and drain the hamburger; set aside.  Cube the Velveeta and place cubes into crock pot.

Add soup, chili, and hamburger to the crock pot and stir to combine.

Cook on low for 2 hours or until Velveeta is melted.

Stir well and put crock pot on warm to serve.

If there is any left over, this freezes really well.  To serve from the freezer, run hot water over the container to loosen dip and place the frozen chunk in the crock pot.  Turn crock pot on high for 2-3 hours or until melted.  You can break up the chunk after about a hour to speed up the process.  After dip is melted turn the crock pot to warm.

This really is an amazing dip and everyone in our family gets pretty excited when we make it.  It probably means we are going somewhere to be with friends!  Friends and Cheesy Chip Dip are a great combination!

What is your favorite party food?

  1. My children would vote for the oh-so-healthy pigs in a blanket! πŸ˜‰
    However, my favorite party food to take would be sausage balls! Between those, your dip, some homemade chips, and a friend’s buffalo chicken we are set! Hey, don’t we need to have a party? πŸ™‚
