How To Make Skyline Chili Dip

This simple appetizer only requires 3 easy to find ingredients and under 30 minutes of your time!

Can of chili, block of cream cheese, and package of shredded cheddar cheese.

  • Canned Chili: You’ll need a can of no-bean chili. For the most authentic flavor use Cincinnati-style Skyline chili if you can find it. You can also use vegetarian chili if you prefer.
  • Cream Cheese: Gives the Skyline dip its creamy texture. Any brand will work.
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese: Provides the chili dip with a layer of melty cheese.

The first step is to preheat your oven to 350°F. You want the oven to be hot when the dip goes in to bake.

Next, take the room temperature cream cheese and spread it evenly across the bottom of an 8×8-inch baking dish. Then add the canned chili and spread it evenly over the layer of cream cheese. Finally, sprinkle the shredded cheddar evenly over the chili to finish assembling the dip.

Now, transfer the dip to the oven and let it bake for 20 minutes. When it’s ready, the cheese will be completely melted and it will be bubbly.

Then remove your Skyline chili dip from the oven and serve it warm with some tortilla chips!
