Chili Cheese Dip

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.

Chili with no beans
  1. In a large, deep pot, brown ground beef, onion, sweet pepper, garlic, and jalapeno in the oil.

Dip
  1. Add cheeses to the chili. Stir over medium or low-medium heat to melt the cheeses. Add a little heavy cream for a better texture.

Fred for 60 people

This was a recipe that the cooks used to make at our church camp.  They didn’t have a name for it, so when someone asked, they would say “Fred”.  Super easy and good!

Apple Crisp for 120 people

I am actually not sure about the baking time for this dish.  The original recipe made 6 servings and baked for 40 minutes.  I never wrote down what the cooking time was for the larger batch.  So just keep an eye on it and let me know if you make it how long it took.

  1. Mix all dressing ingredients together and let stand in refrigerator at least 1 hour. Stir in cole slaw. It will seem like there is not enough dressing to begin with, but will become thinner after the cole slaw is added and it sits for a little while.
