Southwest Chipotle Chicken Dip

Robin Dextradeur


This dip has a smoky flavor mixed with a little sweet corn crunch. It's a healthy combination of chicken with veggies and beans. It is quick and easy and can be made ahead, refrigerated and baked when needed. Baking time can be shortened by microwaving for a few minutes before putting it in the oven. You can tailor it to your taste by adding more or less of any of the ingredients. For extra fIavor, I add a few turns of a chipotle spice/garlic grinder and sometimes use chipotle in adobe sauce. Leftovers can be used as filling in a quesadilla!

Wow, this chipotle chicken dip is gooey, cheesy and loaded with delicious flavor. The chipotle hot sauce definitely puts a Southwest spin on this dip. We had a hard time not snacking on this in the Test Kitchen. It was really good with tortilla chips and we tried buttery crackers too. Add this to your game day appetizers and you'll have a group of happy guests. The Test Kitchen
