  • 8 ounces white Cheddar cheese, shredded

  2. Place the softened cream cheese and chili powder in a medium bowl and stir until completely combined. Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture evenly over the bread. Then add a layer of chili on top of the cream cheese. Sprinkle the shredded white cheddar on top and bake the bread for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted and lightly golden.
