1large round loaf of breadlike shepherder's or sourdough
2teaspoonsscallions for garnishoptional
Tortilla chips or extra bread for dipping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Hollow out the loaf of bread leaving a deep well in the center. (Use a bread knife to cut the center circle then pull the bread out gently with your hands).
In a large bowl, combine chili, cream cheese and 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar.
Pour dip into the bread bowl and smooth the top. Sprinkle remaining cheddar evenly over the top. (I used a spoon to swirl a little of the chili dip to the top so it was visible after the cheese melted).
Place the bread bowl on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until heated through and bubbly and cheese is melted. For extra browning, place under the broiler for a couple of minutes, watching closely to avoid burning.
Let cool a few minutes before serving. Garnish with sliced scallions and serve with chips or bread cubes for dipping.
