Creamy Southwestern Chicken Dip

My girlfriend makes this for parties and cookouts, and it's always a hit. The recipe was passed to her by a coworker of hers, so I'm not sure where it originated. It can be served immediately, or you can put it all together the night before and heat it up (step 3) the next day. It's really tasty and super-simple!

  3. Microwave for another 6-10 minutes. Stir and serve with tortilla chips.

I made this with some of my Homeade salsa and I used Chuahua Cheese instead of Monterey and it disapeared fast around our house
