Good Stuff Dip

The name for this delicious chili cheese dip was founded by my Step-Dad, Mike.  He's just about as straight forward as they come, so it's no surprise that this good stuff was named just that by him, Good Stuff Dip.  This was a staple late-night, movie watching, pigging out snack at our house.  I can remember my Mom lining the coffee table with yesterdays newspapers as my Step-Dad quickly assembled the dip for the oven.  Getting to eat in the living room was nearly as much of a treat as the snack itself.

1 brick- 8oz. of cream cheese (softened)
1- 15 oz. can of Hormel chili with beans (or even better yet-2 cups of Scratch-Made Chili recipe)
1 pkg.- 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
pickled jalapeno pepper slices for garnish
corn chips (I use Frito's Scoops)

-Preheat oven to 375*.  Spread the cream cheese evenly across the bottom of a 8x8 or a 9x9" square baking dish.  Cover with a layer of chili and then top it off with the cheese.  Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to bubble up.  Remove from oven and let stand for about 10 minutes to cool and set up some.  Dot with jalapenos and serve with corn chips for dipping.  Serves 6-8.  Enjoy!
