What is in Chili Cheese Dog Dip?

ingredients to make chili cheese dog dip ring
  • Chili – one of the best parts of this dip is that you can make it in a flash with a can of chili! Of course you can also use homemade chili if you have it on hand. I often make a large batch of chili and freeze them in individual serving sizes in freezer safe containers. To make the dip I simple thaw a portion out and proceed with the recipe.

  • Pillsbury Crescent Rolls – a secret weapon in the kitchen for quick appetizers and sides. I love using crescent rolls in my kitchen! I often cannot find the ‘pigs in a blanket’ wrappers in Canada but if you can find those in your local grocery store you can use those also.

  • Hot Dogs – for a classic chili cheese dog this recipe uses hot dogs. However, you can get creative and use little smokies or smoked sausage of choice.

  • Cream Cheese – the dip is a combination of chili and cream cheese. It adds a creamy texture to the chili and binds it together to become thick enough to dip chips or pigs in a blanket in!

  • Cheddar Cheese – shredded cheddar cheese is mixed into the dip and also baked on top of the dip for a beautiful and cheesy topping! My favorite part of this dip is dipping corn chips in the cheese top layer.

  • Green Onion – this optional garnish adds a pop of color to the dip ring but also a bit of freshness. You could also use chives if you have those on hand instead.
