Chili Cheese Dog Dip

Game Day is approaching and you’re going to need snacks! This Chili Cheese Dog Dip is the ultimate football snack. It combines two delicious appetizers “Pigs in a Blanket” and “Chili Cheese Dip” to provide classic Chili Cheese Dog Flavors all on one plate!

A crowd pleasing snack that’s easy to make!

Chili Cheese Dog Dip

Get all of your ingredients out! You’ll need shredded cheese, mini hot dogs, crescent dough, chili, green onions, minced onions, jalapenos, and neufchatel cheese.

Neufchatel Cheese tastes just like cream cheese and the texture is the same , but it’s fat free! While this isn’t necessarily a healthy snack I always feel like you should save you’re calories where you can and I actually prefer the Neufchatel because it’s a little creamier. You can by all means use regular cream cheese if you can’t find it.

Feel free to omit the jalapenos and green onions if you’re not a fan or have allergies, they are more so to add a little color and a little extra flavor but, the dip is still delicious with or without them. Another fabulous topping would be diced red onions!

Assembling the Dip

Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Start by wrapping your mini hot dogs with the crescent dough. Place them on a cast iron skillet, arranging them in a ring.

Once you have a full ring, start on a second ring in the center. Leaving room for the dip. After you’ve added all of your dogs start on your dip!

Place the neufchatel cheese in a circle in the center. Next, add the chili on top. Finally, add the shredded cheese.

The last step is to brush your dough with egg. Crack an egg in a bowl. Use a pastry brush, (if you don’t have one you can use a spoon – just be careful not to get too much egg on it.) paint the tops of the dough on each of the dogs. Now, sprinkle a little minced onion on each.

Place the cast iron skillet in to the oven. Set your timer for about 15 minutes. Be sure to rotate the skillet halfway through.

As soon as the dough is golden brown and the cheese on your dip is bubbly and melted it should be done cooking. You can also test the dough to see if it’s done in the middle with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean – it’s ready!

Remember the skillet is going to be ridiculously hot for a bit, so be sure to place it on a heat resistant surface and feel free to wrap an oven mit or heat absorbing towel around the handle so it’s easy to transport.

I also like to serve mine with corn chips or tortilla chips as well! Eat your dog, eat your dip, eat your dog in your dip…it’s two appetizers in one – the perfect game day snack!
