Southern Style Seven Layer Dip / #CookOutWeek2017

When we lived in the southwest, a friend of mine brought a 7 Layer Dip over to the house for a party. I was in love with this yummy layered concoction and all it's southwestern flavors like avocado, refried beans and salsa! Talk about good~Yum! Every layer tasted great by itself, but incredibly great all together.
A few years ago, we moved to North Carolina, and for a while now, I having been thinking about recreating "the best dip in the world" with a Southern Style version. So here it is! I used baked beans instead of refried, BBQ instead of salsa, and cheddar instead of 4 Cheese. You are going to love it!

Championship Party Dip

As we are getting into the first games of the NCAA College Basketball Tournament, I want to share this simple Championship Party Dip! This party dip came about after I bought a box of Everything Crackers from Trader Joes. I tore in to the bag as soon as I got home. I was curious as to the taste and if they were anything like the everything bagel. Well, they were really a little too strong for me. I figured that a dip was the perfect solution. I know I needed to start with cream cheese, because it certainly makes an everything bagel taste good! So I came up with this recipe. The ingredients may seem rather bland, but when you dip the everything crackers into it, it's totally amazing! It brings out all the great taste of the crackers, and is rather addicting!

Skyline Chili Dip!

Help! My roots are showing!!! This weeks appetizer is made up of a Cincinnati favorite, and a family and  personal favorite as well. I actually can not remember a time when I did not eat this chili. Even when I moved  2000 miles away I continued to eat it by way of dry ice packages sent in the mail, and visits from friends who dare not show up without chili in hand. This dip was not something I ate then, but I discovered it when it was served at a party I attended when I went back to Cincinnati for a visit. What a treat! It is delicious. Well, that was many years ago, and now you can find Skyline Chili in cans and in supermarkets all around the midwest, and even in parts of the south. That helps a little bit with the craving we occasionally get here in the west, because now friends just bring cans when they visit.
Skyline Chili Dip!
6 oz. Cream Cheese-softened
7.5 oz Skyline Chili
1/4 cup Diced Onions
6 oz. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Dice your onions.
Spread cream cheese on the bottom of your pan.
Top the cream cheese with the onions.
Top with heated chili.
Top with shredded cheddar.
Heat in oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Serve the deliciousness!!

The recipe for this dip is printed on the cans of chili. When
I made the above, I cut the recipe in half, except for the onion.
I used the full recipe of onion. There are a lot of knock off
recipes for this chili floating around the web. I will post one in the future.
If you want to make this, and can't find  Skyline chili, any chili will do.
It won't be Skyline Chili Dip, but it will be good.
You can order some at

Thanks for joining me today!

Tomorrow we will be cooking a Pasta Salad that
is perfect for your football buffet!

Go Team!!!
