Frito Pie Dip

My favorite part about football?  The food you make to eat right before you nap through the game.  I saw this recipe last year at OhBiteIt and I thought....that sounds like my kind of dip.  It includes two of my favorite things.  Fat and calories.
So...if you two are looking for a way to add a few pounds to your hips, or a dip to try out for a football watching party....this did wonders for both of those goals in my life.  The plus side-I should be easy to spot in a football crowd.  ;o)
Frito Pie Dip
Ingredients: 12 oz of cream cheese (softened), 1/2 cup mayo, 1 T. sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheddar, 1 can of your favorite chili, 1 pkt of Ranch Dressing Powdered mix, 1/2 c. of crispy and crumbled bacon, 2 T. steak sauce (I skipped this), 1 C. of crushed Fritos (save the remaining chips for dipping)
1.  In a bowl mix the cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, ranch pkt, and cheese.
2.  In a separate bowl mix the chili and steak sauce.
3.  Form a ball out of your cream mix, but create a well in the middle deep enough to hold your chili.
4.  I chilled the cream mix until I was ready to serve, then heated the chili a little and poured it in the middle.
5.  Stud the sides with Fritos and top the whole thing with the crush chips and bacon bits.
*The bacon bits are also optional-it just depends on your taste.
