Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Dip Ingredients

I love dips and it seems I can never make enough of them! I also love green chiles, which is why I put them in just about every Mexican inspired recipe ever. It’s all the ingredients you’d find in green chile chicken enchiladas.

This dip is filled with all the best ingredients:

  • Green chiles
  • Shredded chicken
  • Cream cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Green onion
  • Green chile enchilada sauce
  • Cilantro
  • Shredded cheese

You guys know I’ve LOVED working with Old El Paso this year. Such an honor to create recipes with such a quality and versatile brand. My favorite place to shop for all my (pantry full of) Old El Paso products? Target of course! I love that I can shop for home goods in one aisle, clothing just a stone’s throw away, and all my grocery items just down the hall. Genius.

With Target’s Cartwheel app I can stay up to date with all the latest deals in an easy and convenient way, right on my phone while I’m shopping. Again, GENIUS. Be still my heart. I got the Old El Paso Taco Seasoning (my favorite in SO many recipes) and it was the perfect amount of spice for this dip.
