Chicken Enchilada Dip

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by SarahBeth

Something my husband and I came up with. This is a great recipe because it lends itself so well to tweaking! To me this is a very mild dip, not bland, but mild as far as the spices go, as posted. If you like it spicier, add some finely diced jalapenos or cayenne pepper to your liking. We love spicy food but for some reason we enjoy this milder dip! Enjoy! Serve with tortilla chips for dipping. The cooking times are approximate as they will vary with your crock pot. I imagine you could make this on the stove top or make this in the microwave and then place it in the crock pot to keep warm. This also, halves very easily for a smaller crowd!

Very good! I made the full recipe and used a hot enchilada sauce. I also added a bit more cheddar, some granulated garlic. and cayenne. Served with tortilla strips and it was perfect for our Christmas Eve party! Thanks for sharing. **Made for PRMR**
