Make Chili a Dip and a Sauce

Make Chili a Dip and a Sauce

My chili recipe functions as a run-of-the-mill chili and a chili dip and sauce. It’s that good.

How do I dip? Stir equal parts chili and queso together and then find a bag of Tostitos for some high-quality dipping.

How do I sauce? Nothing beats cornbread topped with chili. It’s not complete without a bottle of Corona, if I do say.

Hungry yet?

This chili recipe is based on my good friend Judy’s recipe, which I’ve modified over time to be a little more spicy and a little more veggie.

p.s. I have made this chili recipe with bacon before, and, of course, it tasted better. Simply fry up eight pieces of bacon, crumble, and stir in bacon before you serve. If you try it, let me know what you think.

    I love chili and make it often. What’s in your chili seasoning packet? I hope it’s 100% cumin, because I think that’s what makes chili, well, chili. The recipe I use and play with is usually found on any can of Goya red beans. For readers who want to simplify, it’s a great classic recipe. And when I learned to make chili, I discovered the wonders of cumin, and now buy it in bulk. Should I make Chili a la Chung for Dipstock?! 🙂

      I just buy the regular ol’ chili packet in the bean aisle, which has an assortment of spices. I haven’t done much by way of experimenting with cumin, but you’ve inspired me! Chili for Dipstock sounds fab. I’d love to try your version.
