Cheesy Vegetarian Chili Dip
Rating (0 Rated)
Cheesy chili? Yes. Meatless too? Yes. Take the best of both and throw it together in under 30 minutes in your favorite cast iron skillet? Heck yes. This tasty dish is a crowd-pleaser for fall football weekends and makes a quick weeknight dinner served with a fresh green salad, sliced tomatoes and cubed avocados.
