Reduced Fat Cheesy Chili Dip

Use reduced fat cream cheese in this Cheesy Chili Dip recipe to keep the fat down without losing flavor or texture.

1 package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened *
1 can chili
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons copped cilantro

*Note: Non fat cream cheese is not recommended, although can certainly be used. It doesn't get as creamy or lend quite the flavor the reduced fat does.

Spread cream cheese onto microwaveable plate; top with chili and Cheddar. Microwave on high 45 seconds to 1 minute or unti Cheddar is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with assorted crackers and cut-up fresh vegetables.

Variation: Use your favorite variety of canned chili - with or without beans, regular or spicy.
