Preparation / Directions:
In skillet brown ground beef with onion, discard fat. Pour browned meat and onion into Crock-Pot. Add garlic, salt, tomato sauce, ketchup, oregano, sugar, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and chili powder. Set Crock-Pot on Low until cream cheese has melted and is thoroughly blended, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Stir, taste and adjust seasoning if desired.
Serve with cube French bread or tortilla chips.
If a spicier dip is desired, use "hot" chili powder in place of mild chili powder.
