One thing a party needs is good food. I mean, how can you have a party watching a football game without amazing appetizers? I’m not a big football fan so really the only reason I go to the parties is to socialize and eat all yummy finger-licking food and dips like this Chicken Enchilada Dip.

Everyone loves enchiladas and they will for sure love this dip too! Not only is it yummy, it’s easy to throw together and can even be prepared in advance. You start off with some cream cheese and mix in the enchilada dip and taco seasoning. After you mix the creamy sauce together, just fold in the add in the shredded chicken, black beans, corn, and green chilies. If you don’t like spicy things you can just use one can of green chilies but know you are missing out! Oh, and of course there is a bunch of cheese you need to throw into the dip too. Cheese is the key to any irresistible dip. Am I right? That’s why I love Spinach Artichoke Dip and Mexican Layered Dip so much.
For the chicken, you can use leftover rotisserie chicken, bake some, or (my favorite) cook it in the slow cooker. Shred it and then throw it in the dip. After you get the dip all mixed up, place it in a 2-quart dish, sprinkle with more cheese, and refrigerate until ready to bake. Serve it up with tortilla chips and it will disappear quickly. If you do happen to have leftovers of this dip, we found that this tasted delicious in a quesadilla with sour cream and salsa on top. Enjoy!
