Chicken Taco Dip is an easy appetizer loaded with gooey cheese, taco spices, zesty jalapeños, and sour cream. Grab a bag of tortilla chips and serve this hot dip at your next game day party, Cinco de Mayo celebration, girls’ night or even Taco Tuesday!
Can we all agree that the dips are the most important part of any party? Besides the desserts, of course.
If you lose me at a party, chances are high that you’ll find me next to the chips and dip. I love a chilled dip like this 7-LAYER DIP and reader favorite Jalapeno Ranch Dip but sometimes, only a bubbling hot baked dip appetizer will do.
Like this Chicken Taco Dip. Cheesy creamy layers blended with shredded chicken, refried beans and taco spices: this dip has it all!
I’ve been eating it nonstop since it came out of the oven. The family will be lucky if there’s any left. Guess I’ll have to make it again (and again . . . and again).
Here are the ingredients you need to make this easy dip recipe.
These ingredients blend beautifully together in the dip. The cream cheese and sour cream complement the taco spices so it tastes flavorful and zesty, but not overwhelmingly spicy.
Chicken Taco Dip is best served warm fresh from the oven!
If you want to make this in advance, I would follow all the steps in the recipe up until baking. Cover the unbaked dip and store in the fridge.
When ready to serve, bake the dip for about 25 minutes–or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Don’t forget to serve it with lots of crunchy tortilla chips for dipping!
I use a Mexican cheese blend with Colby, Monterey and Cheddar cheese in this chicken dip. It has a nice balance of sharp and mild flavors.
If you don’t have a Mexican cheese blend handy, you can make this dip with shredded cheddar, Monterey Jack or Colby Jack instead.
