How to Make White Chicken Enchilada Dip
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Combine the ingredients.

Any kind of pre-cooked and shredded chicken works great. This is a delicious way to use up leftover chicken, or pick up a rotisserie chicken to save time.
Green chiles add wonderful flavor! Instead of green chiles, try diced jalapeño peppers or Rotel tomatoes.
Use your favorite kind of enchilada sauce – store bought or homemade. I love using green enchilada sauce, but red enchilada sauce also works.
Absolutely! To make this chicken dip ahead of time, prepare the recipe through step 3. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When ready to bake, remove it from the refrigerator and continue with step 4.
Serve warm and fall in love with this dip one chip at a time!
Recipe Tips and Notes
- Shred a store bought rotisserie chicken to save time.
- Room temperature cream cheese is easier to incorporate. Take it out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before making this dip.
- For extra spice, add some freshly diced jalapeños in step 2.
- To prevent the dip from sticking to the baking dish, spray the dish before adding the dip.
- Serve chicken enchilada dip with tortilla chips, crackers, pretzels, and sliced veggies for dipping.
Cheesy, protein-packed, and mega flavorful, this white chicken enchilada dip recipe is one to hold onto!
What size baking dish should I use?
Any 2-quart (7×11-inch) or similarly sized baking dish is great for this recipe. If the dish is a little bigger, reduce the bake time. If the dish is a little smaller, increase the bake time.
Can I use any kind of shredded cheese?
Instead of Monterrey jack cheese, use an equal amount of shredded cheddar or a Mexican cheese blend.
How long does enchilada dip last?
Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Serve this easy white chicken enchilada dip at your next party with margaritas and salsa. It feeds a crowd and always hits the spot!
