15 minute Chili Cheese Dip


You know those days where you literally just want to plant yourself on the couch and do nothing except watch TV and eat? Seriously, why can’t we all just say it out loud. “I want to be a lazy pants in my favorite sweatshirt on the couch ALL day and just put food to my face.” There. I said it.

Well that was me last Sunday. I was pretty okay with contributing nothing to society whatsoever. The biggest problem with this kind of mood though, is that the kitchen is completely abandoned. There aren’t soup pots simmering on the stove, or warm cookies baking in the oven. You can literally hear crickets. *chirp*

15-minute-chili-cheese-dipThat’s why this 15 minute chili cheese dip and I get along real well. You dump some stuff in a pot and wait for it to get warm so that you can eat it minutes later. Now that’s heaven, right there.

Oh my gosh. You know what you should do? Spoon this over a hot dog and TOP IT with potato chips. I DARE you. (And if you do, please show me a pic of it on Instagram or Facebook so that I may live through you.)
