As Heather mentioned yesterday, this Sunday is the Super Bowl. I’m not a fan of the whole watching sports thing; or watching in general for that matter. I figure, why watch when you can do? However I do enjoy hanging out with friends and I also enjoy making something extremely unhealthy without having to worry about eating it all.

All Ready to Nuke

Without a doubt, this sucker fits the ‘unhealthy’ label. Go ahead and throw terms like ‘natural’ and ‘diet’ out the window. My Uncle Rich made this for everyone when we were visiting for Thanksgiving a few years back. This dip is so simple and so delicious. You’ll find yourself coming back for more until you realize the dip bowl is empty (I know I did). Serve with any kind of chip you’d like. It’s more a vessel than anything.

Uncle Rich's Awesome Cheesy Chili Dip

Uncle Rich’s Awesome Cheesy Chili Dip

16 ounces Velveeta cheese
1 12 ounce can of beef chili; no beans
1 15 ounces jar salsa

Cut the cheese into small 1/2 inch cubes. Put half in a bowl and top with the salsa and chili. Add the rest of the cheese. Microwave for 3 minutes and stir. Microwave for another 3 or 4 minutes until all the cheese is melted and everything is hot and gooey. Enjoy.

  1. This sounds so good, but I’m Velveeta-phobic. I wonder if there is some way of gussying it up. Would fontina work? Or am I trying to guild the lily …

    Avida, I totally understand the disinclination towards Velveeta and other cheeses of its…. “quality.” I’ve never worked with Fontina but it does seem a bit classy so your concerns are valid. But then again Fontina is a good melting cheese that’s a plus. Perhaps a half and half with something like cheddar would be best? This is not a classy dip. 😉

    maybe you could dip cauliflower in it?

    Tempting… Maybe then I wouldn’t feel as bad when I eat an entire bowl.
