I used to make this recipe for parties a lot!: http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/chili-dip/ It was super fast and easy.
However, when I found out that I had wheat and soy allergies, I could no longer make it because every single canned chili I can find has soy (along with a lot of preservatives) in it! I am also not a big fan of Velveeta because it is so processed. So I came up with this recipe as a replacement and it is even better, although obviously not as easy! It is still not too difficult though. I will certainly be making it again!
If you would rather used canned chili for the convenience, just use 3 cans of chili in this recipe. Or, if you have a favorite chili recipe (with or without beans), substitute about 6-7 cups of that for this chili.
