Easy Chicken Taco Dip

When I first moved out on my own 14 years ago, my sister gave me an incredible gift. She assembled all of my favorite recipes from growing up, along with a basket full of the ingredients to make them. It made me cry. I’ve been cooking my favorite recipes from that book ever since! One of them was an amazing and super easy chicken taco dip. My sister made it all of the time and I loved it so much, which is why she put it in the book. I decided to make it this weekend as a snack for Marc and me and I was so happy I did.

Leftover grilled chicken formed the meaty base for the easy chicken taco dip. It was perfect because the flavor developed even more overnight. I could wax poetic forever on how much I love leftovers. To make it a manageable size, I chopped it up finely to the point where it was almost shredded.
To compliment the chicken, I also used lots of fresh diced tomato and scallions. I tell you what, there is nothing like a juicy, Jersey fresh tomato this time of year. Those two ingredients added so much gorgeous flavor and color to the easy chicken taco dip.
Once I prepped my ingredients, I just had to stir everything together! I used sour cream, mayo and taco seasoning to make the dip creamy and gorgeous.

I covered my bowl and stored it in the refrigerator until we were ready for snacking. When we sat down to eat, I served the easy chicken taco dip with scoop tortilla chips. They were the perfect dippers for this recipe to keep that taco theme going! It was so much fun to make one of my favorite childhood snacks. Best of all, this dip could not have been more simple! I hope you all love it as much as we do. xoxo
