Skyline Chili Dip Recipe

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.

12 oz (1 bag) Skyline Chili cheese
12 oz cream cheese, softened
*Optional, 1/4 cup diced onion
skyline chili recipe


Directions:
-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 :)

  1. I had never heard of skyline until I met my husband and now I understand what all the fuss is about. I love that dip, it's a standard during the football season, so yummy and cheesy! #whodey

  3. My husband's family is from Cincy and we lived there together for one year while I completed my internship. When we are craving some chili, brats, or Montgomery Inn we order from: http://www.cincyfavs.com/ Thankfully my in-laws send boxes of Graeters around Christmas time. Yummmm Black Raspberry Chip!

  4. Have heard of Skyline, but for some reason I thought it was a restaurant. But this looks delicious. You always throw the best football parties with the best food.

  5. Ughhh...I actually groaned when I saw the title of this post. Why? BECAUSE I MISS IT, ERIN! I miss it so, so much. Fortunately, they do sell the cans of chili and the cheese in Indiana, so we have a monthly coney night at home. Let's be real, though - it's not quite the same. That dip, as always, looks delectable and I think it's a genius idea for a tailgate or football party. Speaking of football..let's get to it!

  15. OMG, this looks so delicious! My husband grew up in NKY and introduced me to Skyline, and luckily we have several locations up here. I've never seen the cheese for sale but I'll look for it and make this for the next gathering!

  17. YUM! My mom used to make something similar to this for football game days, and it was amazinggggg :)

  18. I don't think that list is accurate, because I've actually seen Skyline at our one and only Kroger down here in Louisiana. I think that has more to do with the fact that it's Kroger than anything else, but I was quite excited when I happened to be walking down an aisle and spotted the familar Skyline logo!

  19. This looks and sounds soooo so delish! I checked the website and it's in select grocery stores in our area so I do believe I will be making this instead. Thanks for sharing :)

  20. Holy yum. I am an Ohio girl too (Columbus) and LOVE me some Skyline. I haven't had it in years but just might need to make this dip. You can usually find the cans in any Kroger or Kroger brand store (even the King Soopers out here in Colorado have them). Thanks for sharing!
