Easy Mexican Chicken Dip

This Chicken Enchilada Dip should come with a warning label! It is dangerously delicious! Every time I make it, people go crazy over it. I took this to a football party a few weeks ago and was gone in a flash! Chicken, cream cheese, Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles, Mexican cheese blend, cumin, chili powder, garlic, dried oregano, and black pepper. O-M-YUM! SO much amazing flavor! 

While we usually serve this as an appetizer, I could actually eat this dip as my dinner. Bake the dip and serve it in some tortillas with some black beans and rice! SO good! No matter how you serve this, you must make it ASAP. It is my most requested dip recipe for parties and tailgating!

How to Make Chicken Enchilada Dip

This dip recipe is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large bowl, stir together softened cream cheese, Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles, Mexican cheese blend, cumin, chili powder, minced garlic cloves, oregano, black pepper, and shredded chicken. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and bake until bubbly. Garnish with cilantro, green onions, or parsley.

  • I used a rotisserie chicken for the shredded chicken in this dish. You can use any cooked chicken that you have on hand – chicken breast, chicken tenderloins, or chicken thighs all work great.
  • Feel free to add black beans, jalapeno, olives, cilantro, or green onions to the dip.
  • You can use 2½ tablespoons of taco seasoning in place of the seasonings. 
  • Can I make Chicken Enchilada dip in the slow cooker? Yes! Mix together the dip and spread it in the crock pot. Cover on cook on LOW for several hours, until warm.
  • Can I make Chicken Enchilada dip ahead of time? Yes! You can assemble the dip in advance and refrigerate for later. The dip will keep about 3 days in the refrigerator.
  • Is Chicken Enchilada Dip spicy? There is a kick from the Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles. If you are worried about the heat, use a can of MILD Rotel.
  • This dip is low-carb, keto-friendly, and gluten-free.
