To make Hormel chili cheese dip, cut a 1-pound block of processed cheese such as Velveeta into cubes, and combine it with a can of Hormel chili without the beans. Heat the mixture on a stove until the cheese melts, and then serve it warm with chips.
There are several versions of this recipe. Some use chili with beans, and some use cream cheese in place of processed cheese. It's also possible to alter the recipe by using spicy chili instead of mild or medium-spiced chili. One popular spicy variation is to add in two 10-ounce cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles in addition to the spicy chili.
One of the most popular methods of cooking this recipe is to place all ingredients into a 1 1/2-quart slow cooker. The ingredients are placed on a high setting until the cheese melts and then a warm setting for the duration of the party. For a party of more than 10 people, the recipe can be doubled and a larger slow cooker used. This recipe will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days, but should be warmed before serving. Hormel chili cheese dip should be served with corn or tortilla chips.
