Mexican Chicken Dip

I'm calling this Mexican Chicken Dip- but I use "mexican" loosely because I don't know how else to describe it.  It's really good.  How about that?

My mom was in town for 8 days and brought some food from home, including a few cans of canned chicken breast from costco.  Canned chicken breast has never been on my list of items to buy.  I don't think I had ever had it before.  Canned tuna and salmon, for sure, but chicken?  No.  A quick google search revealed ten billion recipes for chicken dip using canned chicken- so I figured, what the hell?

This dip took two minutes to make, plus another two minutes in the microwave.  S ate most of it, no joke.  The girl loves meat and cheese.  It's hilarious.  Anyways- this would make a great superbowl app served with some celery.

Mexican Chicken Dip
1 can canned chicken breast, drained
4 tbsp cream cheese (i use neufchatel)
1/3 cup shredded taco cheese
1/2 can of fire roasted tomatoes
2 tbsp chili powder

Stir everything, then stick it in the microwave to melt the cheese for a minute.  Stir, and put back for another minute.  Dunzo.  Makes a ton of dip- certainly enough for a party.


  1. I actually have some canned chicken that I keep on hand for my storm supplies. I think I'll give this a try.

  2. yummm, I will have to try this :)
