Chili Cheese Dippers

Here’s another chili cheese dog appetizer recipe! This is perfect for a potluck or when you’re hosting a party.

Servings: 24

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 – 8 ounce package of cream cheese – softened
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of water
  • Manning’s Chili – Original or Hot N’ Spicy – you choose! Make sure it’s thawed out.
  • 1 can of crescent roll dough
  • 1 package of cocktail wieners
  • Chives (optional)
  • Tortilla Chips (for when you run out of cocktail wieners or if you have people who prefer chips)


  1. Combine Manning’s Chili and cup of water in a saucepan. Stir until combined. Simmer until heated.
  2. Remove the heated chili from the burner, then combine chili, cream cheese, and 1 ½ cups of shredded cheese. Set aside the remaining ½ cup of cheese for later. Stir until combined.
  3. Spray an 8 inch pie plate (or something similar that can go into the oven) with cooking spray. Then pour the chili mixture into the plate.
  4. Unroll the crescent dough and cut each triangle into 3 long triangular shaped dough.
  5. Roll one cocktail wiener in each strip of dough to make “pigs in a blanket”.
  6. Place your Pigs in a Blanket around the outer edge of the dish. Place any additional Pigs in a Blanket in another baking dish and cook separately.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup of cheese in the center of the chili mixture.
  8. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until your Pigs in a Blanket are golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and add fresh chives. (Optional)

Set it out and serve! Be sure to bring out the additional Pigs and a Blanket and the tortilla chips. This dip is perfect for both!
