Chicken Mexican Dip - Super Easy!

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by CarolinaCookingGal

This dip is fantastic and is always a hit at parties! The best part - it is super easy and done in a matter of minutes with very little prep work. Before anyone comments that this is not really a cooking recipe, please trust that I know this is just mixing things together, not really cooking. When you are crunched for time and need something quick, this is a great dip. If you would like to spend hours in the kitchen making "artisan" fare, then choose another recipe! :)

This is super tasty and super easy (as advertised!) I had 6 oz cream cheese (Neufchatel) and a deli rotisserie chicken so used the white meat from that instead of the Tyson chicken. I upped everything by half to use up all of the cream cheese. Used a mild salsa and a mix of cheddar and Mexican blend cheese. Tried it cold and heated in the oven for 20 min at 375F and it was good both ways but I liked it a little better warmed. Thanks for sharing! [Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef]

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup of tyson's grilled and ready southwestern chicken strips
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (This is just half of a block, just pop it into the microwave and 10 second intervals until it is sof)
  • 12 cup salsa
  • 12 cup cheese, Mexican mix, cheddar, whatever you have on hand


  1. In a microwavable bowl, microwave the chicken until it is hot (it takes my microwave 1 - 2 minutes).
  2. When it is hot, shred the chicken with two forks.
  3. Throw the cream cheese on top of the chicken and microwave on 10 second intervals until the cream cheese is softened and easy to stir.
  4. Stir in the salsa.
  5. Stir in the cheese.
  6. Stir in any additional ingredients that you choose. Optional - onion, black beans, cilantro - whatever you like! I usually use a red onion, but it tastes just as great without it.
  7. You can serve this hot or cold. I normally use Scoops, since the chicken can break thinner chips.
  8. This makes a small batch of appetizer portions. Double or triple the recipe if you are feeding a crowd! This dip is always one of the first to go, when I take it to parties.
