Step 1

Heat a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add the oil and the onions, sautéing med-low with a pinch of salt until translucent. Add the garlic and serrano, sauté until fragrant. Add ground beef, another pinch of salt and cook beef until crumbled and no longer pink.

Add the chili sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt and simmer, stirring a few minutes until juices begin to reduce. Add the kidney beans and stir to combine, cooking another few minutes until thickened. Remove pan from heat and cool to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Spread cream cheese evenly over the bottom of a 10" ceramic or glass pie plate. Spread all of the beef/bean mixture evenly over the cream cheese. Sprinkle cheddar over all. Bake until cheese has melted and mixture is hot through, 20-30 minutes.

Serve with any/all optional toppings and chips.
