This is an easy appetizer to make - and a good way to use leftover chili, too! And 100% fool-proof.
1 to 2 cups of leftover chili OR 1 can chili
1 block of cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Spread softened cream cheese on the bottom of a pie pan. Spread chili on top of cream cheese. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cheese should be melted on top. Serve with frito chips and don't think about the calories.
