A Mexican-flavored dip- Serve with tortilla chips and garnish with jalepnos if you like something a little hotter. Its so easy and always goes over well at tailgates, parties, or just anything really.

  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken

  • 12 cup canned jalapeno slices, to taste (optional)
  • chopped seeded tomatoes, for garnish (optional)
  • sliced ripe olives, for garnish (optional)

  5. Cover with shredded cheese.

  7. Garnish with chopped tomatoes, more jalapenos if you're daring, and olives.

No peppers, onions, garlic or lime juice? Then it's not a fajita. This is chicken TACO dip. And don't use one of those seasoning packets and bother to call it a recipe. It takes one minute to add some real cumin & chile powder.

This was such a yummy dip! I think it should be called Chicken Taco dip instead though. It really had nothing fajita about it.

MMMMMM...delicious! I did sub in Salsa for the bottle taco sauce to give it some chunkiness. Left out the olives and chopped tomatoes. Will definitely make this again. Made for both events in Cooking Photos.
