  • Chili Queso Dip – Super easy and delicious Velveeta cheese dip with amazing flavor. Can be made in the skillet, slow cooker and even the microwave!

    Dips are my all-time favorite type of appetizer. I could literally eat chips and dip every day and not get sick of it. We love this chili cheese dip, as well as buffalo chicken dip, spinach artichoke dip and smoked Italian cheese dip. So yummy!

    A good friend gave this Velveeta cheese dip recipe to me years ago and it is still one of my favorite EASY dips to make. You literally just melt everything together in a skillet or crockpot and that’s it! So simple and my whole family loves it!

    I’ve dressed it up a bit by adding in fresh lime juice, cilantro and taco seasoning and it adds the perfect flavor! It is so not healthy but oh so good! Perfect appetizer for a quick get together.

    If you run out of time, you can even throw everything in the microwave for a few minutes until all of the cheese is warm and melted. Seriously so easy and yummy!

    How to make chili cream cheese dip

    There are three different ways that you can make this Velveeta chili dip recipe. I usually prefer the skillet or slow cooker, but it’s nice to know it can get done in the microwave if I’m short on time. So, so simple!

    Skillet

    Warm all ingredients in a skillet over low heat, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.

    Slow cooker

    Add all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Stir and keep warm until ready to serve.

    Microwave

    Place the Velveeta, cream cheese and chili in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 3-5 minutes, or until melted. Then mix in taco seasoning, cilantro and lime juice and stir to combine.
