My name is Erin and I'm in love with just about everything about my city. Cincinnati, in case you're new here. We obviously have the best football team in the world but there are just so many wonderful things that are exclusive to my hometown and I've got one to share with you today. Skyline Chili. The first location opened in 1949 after a young man from Greece finally realized his dream of opening a restaurant in America. The best news I have for you is that even though their restaurants are mostly in Ohio, they do sell their products in 13 different states. Check here to see if you are one of the lucky ones :)
If you're in luck- go grab these THREE ingredients and make this delicious appetizer for your next get-together. If you can't get the Skyline brand products, I still recommend you get your favorite brands of chili and cheese and participate anyway. And then come visit me in Cincinnati sometime so you can get the real deal.
Enough of that- onto to the recipe! Save this one for football season- it's a crowd pleaser for sure.
1 15oz can Skyline Chili
12 oz (1 bag) Skyline Chili cheese
12 oz cream cheese, softened
*Optional, 1/4 cup diced onion
-Spread softened cream cheese evenly on bottom of dish (I always use my 9.5" pie dish, but a small square baking dish works too!)
-Heat chili according to package directions. (Just a couple of minutes in the microwave)
-Pour heated Skyline Chili over cream cheese. This step is messy- you've been warned.
-If you want onions, sprinkle them on now or skip this step like we do!
- Cover with Skyline shredded mild cheddar cheese.
- Carefully put that full dish in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
- Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve with nacho or corn chips and preferably wearing some type of gear representing your favorite football team. ENJOY and pin this recipe for the rest of your friends :)
