Chicken Enchilada Dip

"For some reason I just love this dip. I usually have a little leftover chicken from dinner. I chop it and freeze it just for this dip. In a pinch you could use the already cooked chicken strips from the grocery store, but that could get very expensive. You can also double this for a party and use a 13 x9 pan instead of the pie plate. I keep meaning to make enchiladas out of this filling to see how it goes, but I haven't gotten around to it yet."

    WOW! This is delish. I used lowfat cream cheese/cheddar cheese. I also used the precooked, pre-cut grocery chicken since I had some on hand. I finely chopped it using my food processor. I added in a little cumin and used a little less cheese and green chilies, but this was STILL perfect! I will be making this again and again, even for company or potlucks. It's THAT good! :-D I am going to try the rest of it in enchiladas too, what a great idea - thanks for sharing this one!

    I can't believe I forgot to rate this!! I made it a couple of months ago for a couple of friends and I to have with some wine. We absolutely loved it!! I had to give them the recipe. My DH loved it, too. I'm making it again tomorrow for a family get together and will have to double it! Thanks for posting!
