One of the recipes that has become an essential at many family gatherings is this Cream Cheese Green Chili Dip. We have it at so many family functions because it’s delicious and seriously takes one minute to make (and I’m not exaggerating!)
I admit I had my reservations when I first saw this appetizer, but it’s definitely become one of my favorites, and especially because it’s so simple!
I have two favorite sauces that you can buy to pour over the cream cheese. One is at AJ’s Fine Foods and is called Cannon’s Sweet Hots. The other is the pepper jelly from Trader Joe’s.
Made in a jiffy!

Tips + Variations
Halloween Version: We love to make this around Halloween and add some green olives for eyes to make it look a little creepy.
Another way that you can serve this is to mix the softened cream cheese with the green chili sauce. Serve in a bowl. This also makes it easier to add some spices should you choose to do so. Some additional flavors include garlic salt or turn up the heat with some chili pepper.
- Crackers Ritz, Wheat Thins, Triscuits
- Pretzels hard or soft
- Chips like tortilla chips, corn chips, Fritos
- Veggies such as peppers, celery and carrots
STORE leftover cream cheese along with any of the green chili sauce into an airtight container. Store it in the fridge for 4-5 days.
Trust me – this is so good and simple you won’t have leftovers. 😉
