Want a simple to make chili dip? My Skyline Chili Dip is the best chili dip and it is so easy to make. If you can work a microwave, you can make this recipe.
*If you don’t have frozen Skyline Chili, you can order Skyline Chili Cans. You’ll need to heat it up before making this recipe!
Skyline Chili is a favorite in our house. I am not sure if it is because it is a local classic, a Cincinnati thing, or if it is because it is the best chili I have ever had, other than my own homemade, award-winning chili, of course. Either way, Skyline chili is a great choice for making chili dip.
Skyline Chili Dip is perfect for a game day recipe, for picnics and get-togethers. It is also a great pot luck recipe. Since Skyline Chili Dip doesn’t have beans in it, it tends to appeal to even fussy eaters.
Variations to Skyline Chili Dip
Onions: You can use chopped onions in this dip. While the onions will soften slightly in the microwave, you can also saute the onions if you don’t like the strong taste of raw onion.
Tomatoes: If you like a little chunk to your dip, you can add chopped tomatoes. You can use fresh or from a can, just drain the tomatoes if you are using tomatoes from a can.
