This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. My grandmother makes it as an appetizer for all special occasions, and I love it every time. I also remember making it in college a lot for parties on game day (Go Dawgs!)
When I was thinking about what to make for this month’s book club choice, Gone Girl, I kept thinking about a scene in which a local girl offers the main character a Chicken Frito Pie right after his wife’s disappearance. I looked up the recipe for this, but it didn’t seem right for book club, so I made this instead. It’s simple, quick, and always a hit!
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup chunky salsa
- 1 9 in. microwave-safe pie plate (I don’t have one, so I used a bowl.)
Spread cream cheese into plate. Top with salsa. Top with cheese. Microwave on high 2-3 minutes, or until cheese melts. So easy and good!
