This simple Creamy Chicken Enchilada Dip takes a classic dinner and makes it into the perfect appetizer for game day or your next party. Minimal ingredients and great flavor make this recipe a party regular!
Last summer I was making chicken enchiladas when my sister-in-law suggested that the filling would make great dip! Rachel was right, of course, and I ended up adding a few more creamy ingredients to make this creamy chicken enchilada dip.
Our household is comprised of Mexican food lovers and taking a favorite dinner and turning it into dip has been a big hit. I make it for parties of course but also for dinner! Sometimes the hassle of stuffing all the enchiladas just annoys me and this dip means everybody can just dip their own chips or stuff a tortilla at the table.
If I do serve it for dinner, I usually put out a salad or Mexican rice and some veggies like tomatoes and olives.

Wow! This was so easy, rich, delicious and creamy. Definitely recommend mixing cream cheese and sour cream first till it’s smooth then adding everything else ( I didn’t and had lumps of cream cheese, even though I thought I mixed it well).
Lots of compliments and even the toddler had some!
Thanks! I’m so glad you liked it. And you are right about that tip – I went in and updated the recipe instructions to reflect it so other people won’t run into the problem. Thank you!
