Labor Day is on Monday, which is always the sort of official/unofficial end of summer, ushering in of the new school year, and hopefully when cooler weather prevails. It’s also an awesome weekend for epic cookouts as a way to say goodbye to summer. I can’t think of a better way to pay homage to the summer months than with a show-stopping dessert like this s’mores cheesecake.

S’mores always screams summer to me, with memories of bon fires in the backyard behind the pool, skewering marshmallows on tree branches and torching them until they were charred and little marshmallow fires had to be huffed and puffed out. Given my love of s’mores and my immense love of all things cheesecake, it’s no surprise that this little number absolutely made my summer.

We’re creeping in on labor day weekend, which means (for me) it is officially DIP SEASON. And really, can you think of a better season? There are football games to watch, cool fall evenings watching movies, some last-chance cookouts… all of which are perfect excuses to dust off your favorite dip recipes and start churning them out.

Honestly, give me a great dip and dessert, and I am good to go. I don’t even need the “real” food.

This cheesy chili dip is so ridiculously easy – THREE ingredients! 10 minutes prep time! – that you have to make room for it in your recipe arsenal.
