The Dip


2 x 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened
2 cans prepared chilli (with or without beans)
1 large jar salsa (hot or mild, to taste)
2 x 8-oz. packages Monterey jack cheese, shredded


Use a spatula to spread the softened cream cheese evenly over the bottom of a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan. Pour chilli over the top of the cream cheese and spread evenly. Pour the salsa over the chilli and spread evenly again. Sprinkle shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top, and bake in a pre-heated 350ºF degree oven for about 20 to 30 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

The recipe can also be microwaved for about 15 minutes in a microwave-safe pan. Prepare in exactly the same manner otherwise. Serve the dip warm with plain or flavored tortilla chips.
