Hormel Chili Dip

This is a great hot dip that takes little effort and everyone comes back for more!  In fact, I decided to post this recipe because I have had several requests for me to make this dip for our annual tree hopping event this coming weekend.


1 lb ground beef
1 can hormel chili NO beans
1 pack of dry taco mix
1 15 oz jar of cheese whiz
1 8oz cream cheese

You will also want tortilla chips to eat with this dip.  I think Tostitos scoops make eating this dip easy!

Brown the hamburger and drain off grease.  Place all of the ingredients in slow cooker on low or warm.  Stir occassionally as cheese melts.  Once dip is warm just place slow cooker on warm.

Peanut Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I am just going to warn you right away....these cookies are so yummy!  My cousin gave me this recipe and my family can't get enough of these cookies. ( I think she may have gotten it from a Kraft Magazine)


1 cup flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (iodized)
1/2 cup butter or 1 stick
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
6 squares chocolate, coarsely chopped (chocolate chips work in a pinch if you don't have the squares)

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix.  Bake at 325 to 350 degrees to your liking.  Place on cooling rack when done.
