Happy Cinco de Mayo - Ole' Green Chili Chicken Dip

By

This is one of my favorite party foods.  I don't remember where I found the original recipe, but I've been making (and modifying) it for years.  So easy, yet delicious!

In fact, I am tripling this recipe to serve tonight at the Gallery Night in McKinney event.

 

Ingredients:

2 8-oz bars of cream cheese

1 can green chilis

1 can chicken (or 1 cup cooked, chopped)

2 cups shredded cheddar (I use Sharp) cheese

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375

Mix cream cheese, chilis, and 1 cup cheese for about 1 minute on low speed. It will be enough to combine ingredients thoroughly.

Stir in chicken with a fork to blend

Spread mixture in a 8 or 9" pie plate

Bake for 15 mins. Add remaining cup of cheese on top.  Bake for 5-7 mins more to melt the cheese.

Serve with wheat crackers.  Or, my new favorite is the jalepeno cornbread crisps (found at Wal-mart)

 

 

The mildly spicy richness of this dip will have your tastebuds shouting "Ole'!"


For a great "Date Night" idea, stop by Gallery Night in McKinney any time between 7-10pm to enjoy the art, music, and fiesta foods....including Sangria and this dip, of course!!
