Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Dip – Bubbling hot gooey, cheesy enchilada dip.  Turn your favorite green chili chicken enchiladas into a dip perfect for game day.

Any kind of cheese dip is always a hit for game day, get togethers, or just a random Thursday night. I mean, how can you go wrong with gooey, melty cheese?!

Often times when you think of a cheese dip, you think of something like White Queso Dip, but there are so many other delicious options out there! This loaded with chicken, so you could almost justify making a meal out of it.

Mexican food is probably my favorite type of food out there. I would eat Sour Cream Enchiladas with some homemade Guacamole every night of the week if I got a chance. So why not put all those flavors in a dip that will knock your socks off!

How To Make Chicken Enchilada Dip

I love how simple this is to throw together and the flavors just shine and make it an over the top delicious dip.

  1. Start by mixing together the cream cheese, sour cream, enchilada sauce, green chilies, cumin, chili powder and salt until everything is smooth and combined.
  2. Stir in the chicken, mozzarella cheese and some of the Monterey Jack cheese.
  3. Next up you bake it for about 25 minutes until it is hot and bubbly. You could also put it in the crock pot at this point topped with the remaining cheese until everything is hot and melted for a party.
  4. If you are baking it top with the rest of the cheese and bake it until it is melted.
  5. This is best served warm.

Can I Make Enchilada Dip Ahead Of Time?

Yes, you can mix everything together and store in the fridge until you want to bake it. It will last for about 2 days in the fridge before you bake.

You can also put the dip in the crock pot instead of the oven to heat it up for a party and keep it warm while your guests are enjoying it.

  1. This looks so good! I love green chilis and cheese:) I am putting this on my menu for next week!

  2. 5 stars
    Very yummy! Because I was short on time, I doubled it and just mixed it all together, no cheese on top. It was a hit.
    Anyone try turning these into enchiladas?
