Easy Chicken Enchilada Dip

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

This Chicken Enchilada Dip is a great choice for any party or event.  A creamy cheese-laden dip with tons of flavor from enchilada sauce, spices, and the addition of extra protein in the chicken and black beans.  I love this version of a chicken dip as it goes so well with tortilla chips and has tons of flavor.  Definitely a different option outside the regular dips on the buffet table.

I love serving this alongside my skillet Mexican corn dip and my artichoke jalapeno dip.  They are all so packed with flavor!

Chicken Enchilada Dip

Every party needs a great dip recipe.  Whether it is a birthday party with your kids or a New Year’s Eve party with friends and family, dips are a must.  This one is loaded with bits of chicken, black beans, corn, cream cheese, and a great cheese blend.  It has jalapeno for extra spice, but of course, you can leave that out or substitute green chiles if you prefer.

If you like spicy, you’ll love this bacon jalapeno popper dip as another option for your appetizer menu.

Can I make This Chicken Enchilada Crock Pot Dip? 

Yes!  If you prefer to let this cook over a few hours and stay warm for your party, you can definitely mix this up in the slow cooker instead of in the oven.  Just make sure you allow for enough time for all of the cheeses to melt and the flavors to combine. You could even put this into a large bowl that is safe for your Instant Pot and prepare it there if you wanted!

Can I Use Canned Chicken for This Dip? 

While I would prefer to have rotisserie or cooked and shredded chicken, you can add canned chicken in a pinch.  The texture is not the same and for some, the flavor will be different.  It can work for you if it is all you have on hand, but I highly recommend using rotisserie chicken for the best flavor.

What Should I Serve With This Chicken Enchilada Dip? 

Tortilla chips are the best option for serving with chicken enchilada dip. You can also use celery sticks, carrot sticks, pita chips, veggie chips, or even veggie straws.  You will want something a bit sturdier for this as it is a thicker dip.

Potato chips are another option, but they may not give the right flavor combination you want. If you adjust it and make it 100% keto-friendly, then you could also serve this with pork rinds.

You can even eat this with a spoon or inside one of these homemade tortillas as a wrap! It’s just that good!
