Chicken Enchilada Dip

A friend brought this appetizer to our house for a dinner party. Everyone loved the zesty chicken and cheese dip so much that no one was hungry for supper. My friend graciously shared the recipe, and I’ve served it many times, always with rave reviews. –Leah Davis, Morrow, Ohio

    Delicious, super fast and easy. I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

    very good. family and friends really liked it. i may try a lower sodium soup because I thought it was a tad bit salty if the chips had salt.

    What a wonderful dip, everyone who tried it loved it. I will be making this delicious and easy dip again in the future.I made mine directly in the crock pot. First I sauteed the onion and celery in a pan with a little bit of oil until it was tender then added it straight into my 2qt crock pot along with all of the other ingredients. I also added 1/2 cup of Mexican cheese with the cheddar.Add about 1/8tsp Daves Insanity Sauce to kick it up a notch =)

    I made this recipe (doubled it) for our monthly wine tasting in our business, and it was such a hit I had to give out the recipe to at least 5 people! It was easy, and DELICIOUS and I will definitely make it again.

    Boy am I glad that I doubled this recipe for yesterday's Christmas party. Like others mentioned, it went over so well that several people asked for this recipe. I did a few minor adjustments.. I used Tillamook reduced calorie cheddar cheese, 12 ounces of evaporated milk, 7 ounces green chilies and I didn't double the celery or onions. Although I increased the liquid (evaporated milk) and didn't increase the celery or onions, it was still a thick dip since I prepared it the night before to let the flavors blend together. I'm definitely making this again!

    Prepared this on the stovetop, sauteing onions and celery first, adding remaining ingredeints except cheese plus a couple of tablespoons of chopped jalapenos until heated through. Removed from heat and stirred in cheese until melted. Very good and about as quick as the microwave method.
