Spicy Cheesy Chicken Dip

Hello! Welcome to Meals 4 Sharing Link-UP! If you stopped by last week…hello again I’m glad your back.  If you’re new to Eat 2gather,  the Meals 4 Sharing Link-up is about loving others through the gift of food. “Others” can be anyone….your kiddos, husband, neighbors, teachers, youth group, whoever…whenever!

It’s that time again, Super Bowl Sunday only two days away!!!  If you are an American whether you love football or not, it’s hard to avoid.  Many of us start planning our parties before the teams are even known.  Super Bowl food is typically not sit down to the table food, it’s grazing food.  My favorite kind of food! Finger food.  Refill your plate with a bite of this and a bite of that…..eat all night till your sick food.  Hey, it’s the American way isn’t it?  Indulgence.

What do you indulge your friends and family with on Game Day?

Whether we have friends over or not we always have all our favorites.   I said before that my Kenny can be an anti-social football watcher,  but this year we have invited some friends over to watch the game and chow-down with us.  You see his teams didn’t make it in, so he’s willing to be distracted by all of us Boo0yah’s (me mostly) who just like to watch the commercials and  have an excuse to over eat!

What are your plans for Super Bowl Sunday?

I usually ask my team what they would like to eat and that’s our game day menu.   This usually consists of Wings, Roasted Shrimp Cocktail, Guacamole, Pica de Gallo, assorted dips, Caramel Corn the list goes on and on.  It’s really quite embarrassing how much food we have out for Super Bowl Sunday.  Oink!

This year I have a hankerin’ for my cousin Angela’s Disappearing Chicken Dip.  I had never made it before because I like her to make it, and then I like to eat it…ALL.  But we are not going to see my cousin on SBS,  so she gave me her recipe so I could make it myself.  “Me do it myself”……oh I long for the days when my kiddos said cutey patootey phrases like this.  Sorry, I completely had a moment.  I’m back on track……

So here it is Disappearing Chicken Dip. It’s a meal.  It’s a dip.  Itsa meal. Itsa dip.  Itsa addicting!

You will need a 8×8 baking dish for one recipe, but you might just want to get out your 9×13 and double it! Just saying, it’s that good.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Boil 3 Chicken Breast and cut them into bite sized pieces.  Chop 1/2 -1 cup of Jalepeno Peppers, the jarred variety.

Add Chicken, Jalapenos, 1 brick of Cream Cheese, 1 Cup Hellmans Mayonnaise, 1 cup Sour Cream, 2 cups shredded Cheddar and or Monterey Jack Cheese, (as you can see it’s real low-cal) 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder,  and salt and pepper to taste to a medium sized bowl.  Mix well, making sure there are no lumps of cream cheese.

Spread into a shallow baking dish, and place in preheated oven (350 degrees) for 30 minutes or until bubbly and starting to brown around the edges.


Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, pita chips, or slices of baguette.


Oh this dip is so oohey, gooey, spicy, and chunky.  Grab a chip…..

and scoooper up!  However, may I suggest you place a serving spoon in the dish, so your friends and family can spoon this hefty dip on their plates.  Otherwise you may run in to this….

the broken chip left behind in the dip, and unsitely digging with fingers in the dip…and then finger licking.  Ewe, take my advice, you’re going to want to #1 double the recipe #2 serve with a large serving spoon.

  1. This is the best dip I have ever eaten. I like to use mostly monteray jack cheese and just a little cheddar. Even people who don’t like jalapenos like this one.

    1. Leslie, thanks for stopping in to say so! I think it’s pretty darn good too….addicting in every sense of the word! Have a great weekend! Sheila

  2. Hey what time does your party start cause I think I’m heading over to your house! FRIED CHICKEN! Oh we do love our fried chicken in this house! Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh Sheila! That dip of yours and your cousins!!! I am adding that to our SBS menu!

    I am like you…and so is the rest of my family as well as our friends…we really just like to eat and watch the commercials. There is usually a lot of chatting and socializing…and eating…during the actual game! LOL!

    On our menu is the Texas Chicken Chili I shared with you in the comments last time. Plus guacamole and chips, and stuffed jalapeño poppers…filled with cream cheese, then sprinkled with Monteray jack and put under the broiler. I’ll also have a big Caesar salad plus veggies and dip (usually a homemade Ranch).

    OK, now the the healthier stuff is out of the way, I have to confess that we also throw baby back ribs on the grill (the weather is usually mild enough here in the Texas Hill Country) and I make a big platter of fried chicken too! Very simple recipe that requires no advance prep. Cut up a chicken into about 10 pieces, dip in butter milk then flour that has a bit of cornstarch added to it along with plenty of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Shake off excess flour and then dump into hot oil or fat (350) and fry…maybe about 10 minutes per side.

    And forgive me…I fry in lard I get from a local farm!…I’ve also used tallow that I get from the rancher where I buy my beef. It’s fantastic for frying…especially French fries! Also…my secret tip is that I use an electric fry pan to cook the chicken…it makes it easy to maintain the correct temp for the oil/fat.

    Have a great weekend. And thank you so much for saying the dip recipe. I don’t think I can wait to SBS. I think I’ll try that tonight for Family Movie Night!

    Have a great weekend!

    Much Love,
