Ingredients used to make green chile chicken enchilada dip

Ingredients For Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Dip

  • Shredded chicken: Any cooked shredded chicken works for this recipe. (We’ll usually buy rotisserie shredded chicken to cut down on prep!)
  • Canned diced green chiles: Use “hot”green chiles if you want a spicy dip and “mild” chiles for less heat.
  • Green enchilada sauce: We’re only using a ½ cup of sauce in this recipe so a small can will work just fine!
  • Corn: Can use fresh or frozen corn. (I personally love using fresh corn if I can find it. It adds a fun pop of sweetness & texture to your dip.) If using frozen corn, make sure to thaw it completely and drain as much excess liquid as possible before adding it to your dip. (Too much liquid will make your dip watery.)
  • Cream cheese: Block cream cheese works the best for this recipe!
  • Plain greek yogurt: We use 0% greek yogurt but feel free to use your favorite. (Just make sure it’s plain!)
  • Cheese: A hefty handful of pepper jack cheese goes in your dip to add flavor and spice. (Pepper jack not your thing? Try using shredded cheddar cheese instead1)
  • Seasonings: Chile powder and salt are all your need to spice up your chicken dip!

How To Make Chicken Enchilada Dip In The Oven

  1. Preheat your oven. Turn your oven on to 350 degrees and spray a cast iron or casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare your ingredients. Drain & rinse your chiles, cut the kernels off your corn cobs (if using fresh) or thaw your corn (if using frozen), grate your cheese & let your cream cheese soften at room temperature.
  3. Mix. Add all your dip ingredients to a large bowl and stir.
  4. Bake. Pour the dip into your prepared cast iron (or prepared dish) and sprinkle some extra pepper jack over the top. Bake your dip for 25-30 minutes or until it’s warm all the way through.
  5. Serve! Garnish with chopped cilantro, green onion, avocado or black olives and serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips!

Want a spicer dip? Use hot green chiles & medium/hot enchilada sauce.

Want a more mild dip? Use mild chiles & mild enchilada sauce.
