Fav Chips N Dips Recipe Rally

I know I have a lot of posting to catch up on, but I saw they were having a recipe rally for chips and dips at Crazy Hip Blog Mamas and I had to share ours.

Beyond easy, but very tasty!

1 can hormel chili (whatever kind you like, we usually go with regular with beans, but also enjoy vegetarian when my sister-in-law and niece are around. Darn ulcers I must stay away from the hot)
1 brick cream cheese (go lowfat or whatever if it floats your boat.)
1/4 cup prepared salsa
Handful or two of cheese (your choice, we usually do colby-jack)

Now you can make this 2 different ways for 2 different enjoyment levels. Sometimes we put it in layers on a plate/shallow dish.
Then I spread cream cheese first, cover with salsa, then chili, then cheese. Then you bake/microwave it until it is melted and bubbly.

If we are going to a pot luck or having people over and we want it to stay warm longer, we throw everything into the crockpot and mix it up.

Serve with tortilla chips. Sometimes we like to garnish with black olives and/or chopped green onion and tomatoes.
