Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Dip
Dips, dips and more dips! I love making dips for friends, family or just me depending on what I am in the mood for that day. My kids love to snack on warm dip with tortilla chips or slices of French bread. It is not unusual for our house to have extra kids in it on the weekend as my kids love having sleepover’s. Snack items are best for teenagers especially ones they can heat up themselves in the microwave.
This Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken Enchilada dip is full of flavor! Green chiles and enchilada sauce help bring the flavor and add in some shredded or chopped cooked chicken for more. If you want this dip to be a little hotter, add in some more chopped jalapenos.
You can use leftover chicken for this recipe or canned chicken. I am always on the hunt for good deals on meat and when I find a good deal on chicken, I stocked up and home can the meat and chicken stock. A pint size jar of shredded cooked chicken is a perfect size for these types of recipes and you get about 1 1/2 cups of cooked chicken in the pint and some liquid. I prefer the taste of home canned chicken to store bought any day.
Tortilla chips worked perfectly for dipping or corn chips and some sliced bread. This dip heated up nicely the next day. Store any leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days. I added some of the leftover dip to the top of some nachos and sprinkled some cheese on top with chopped onions, tomatoes and black olives for a nice lunch.
