Super Bowl XLVIII---Recipe for YUMMY Touchdown Bean Dip!

With the Super Bowl just around the corner I started pulling together some of my favorite party recipes that have brought some pretty hefty accolades from our guests.  One of them was a recipe from "27" years ago! My husband was working at General Motors at the time and we were invited to party at one of his colleagues homes in Western NY.

The Super Bowl spread was like no other we had ever seen. Each guest invited brought their favorite hors d'oeuvre and shared the recipe. As usual at parties there are always those that were so delish everyone was crazy about it.  Maria, who was from Mexico, was hailed the winner of the evening with everyone begging her for this delicious recipe.

For many years after, we either brought it to a party or included it in many of our parties. Maria's BEAN DIP sits at it's rightful place of honor, center stage, every Christmas Eve at our house.

Because it is Super Bowl time I temporarily renamed it.......Touchdown Bean Dip! It is simple,
easy, and I will guarantee you that you will hear lots of yummy comments from your guests!


1--8 oz. pkg. cream cheese (softened)
1--7oz. can Hormel Chili (if you like spicy you may substitute HOT Chili)
1--3oz. can chopped green chili peppers (drained)
5--chopped green onions
1--8oz. pkg. shredded cheddar cheese

Layer each ingredient in a 10 pie plate or similar dish.
Bake at 375 degrees for approx. 15 minutes or until bubbly around the edges

Serve hot with Frito Scoops or my girls like Doritos.


  Go Broncos!
