I have made this several times and it is always delicious. I normally use ground turkey in place of the chicken, because it is easier to find, but I have also made this with shredded chicken breast. We have it as a meal, with Scoops. We have also shared it with company and everyone has loved it and requested it again.The smoked paprika really makes a difference, as opposed to regular paprika from the grocery store. I buy the smoked online and it lasts a long time. If I don't have that, I have used ground chipotle and it was also delicious, but hotter.

We liked it. It is not a thick dip.
