There is no shortage of sweet treats at our house during the holiday season! There’s the treats we make for ourselves, the treats we eat at parties we attend, the stuff we make for neighbors, the stuff the neighbors make for us… the list goes on and on! And while I do have a bit of a sweet tooth, I’ll inevitably reach the “sweetness overload” stage at some point. After that, I usually start craving something salty!

So a few Christmases ago, when my daughter-in-law Kaitlyn mentioned that she used to make an easy Chili Cheese Dip all the time when she was in college, I was highly intrigued! I immediately went to my kitchen to see if I happened to have the necessary ingredients. And to my surprise, I did! (Though maybe it shouldn’t have been all that surprising, considering I only needed three ingredients!)

I ended up making Kaitlyn’s dip that very night, and a new family favorite was born! I’ve made it many times since then, and it’s become a Christmastime tradition! It’s the perfect savory dip to help offset all those sweet treats. Pair it with some salty tortilla chips, and you’ll have yourself a quick and easy snack that is almost impossible to put down! Here’s how to make it at home.
