I don’t know about you guys, but King Ranch Chicken Casserole has always been one of my favorite casserole indulgences. All that CHEESE, chicken, spice, and tortillas. Such great comfort food, and SO easy to throw together. So when thinking about Super Bowl appetizers and how I could make something new, and fun, I instantly thought that King Ranch Chicken Dip would be just the thing! Turns out that those comforting casserole flavors lend themselves just as easily to an awesome dip, and it’s just as easy as the meal to make. What’s not to love??

It’s no secret that my favorite way to spice up SO many of my favorite party foods is with Old El Paso! I used their Taco Seasoning, Flour Tortillas, and Green Chiles (my FAVE) for this recipe and they were the perfect (easy) addition. I’m addicted and I don’t care who knows it!

I have a lot of favorite dips, but this one is right up there with all the winners. It’s such a fun and new twist on one of my very favorite meals, and I hope you love it as much as we do! It’s our new favorite way to tailgate, especially for the Super Bowl! Who are you guys cheering for? With my Chiefs out I’m pretty much just cheering against the Patriots…mostly because Pat likes them. I can’t have him walking around the house happy now can I??
