Nacho Chicken Dip

Dionne Baldwin | Try Anything Once

Nacho chicken dip is an out of this world dip you and your guests will love so much, you’ll want to eat it with a spoon! Or at the very least chips that resemble the end of a spoon for easy scooping.

This creamy dip is going to be a favorite with you, your family and your guests. You really can’t go wrong with a warm, cheesy dip like this one. The recipe is adapted from a casserole recipe that is really good to serve over rice (we love rice at my house), but the last time I made the casserole, I ended up using chips for spoons. So, I made a few changes, and here you have this comfort food dip that’ll be the star of your appetizer menu.

Comfort foods like this really hit the spot after a long, hard day. Somehow when you dip into a dish like this, the day doesn’t seem as bad. At least until the dip is gone! Do you have a favorite comfort food that makes everything almost better?

I encourage you to try this very same recipe with ground beef or perhaps steak to make a slight change. You’ll love it!

With the timing of this recipe, you can work on the main dish while this dip bakes in the oven if you don’t already have something cooking in the crock pot.

It’s also the perfect dish to make in a counter-top oven, if there are plenty of other goodies in the big one. I like serving this with big Fritos scoops, but toasty bagel chips would be awesome too. Or celery and carrots, if you’re into that healthy sort of thing. I guess. This really isn’t a dip for you if you’re watching calories, so I say go full-on with the chips.

If you have willing helpers, you can encourage everyone to dive in and lend a hand so you can sit with everyone else once the dip is ready to eat.

I hope you love this recipe! Be sure to check out the other awesome appetizer recipes here on Food Fanatic.
