Crock Pot Green Chili Chicken Queso is super easy to make and tastes like the best enchilada you've ever had!
You guys. I've found crock pot dip heaven and I'm never coming back! I've always been a fan of slow cooker appetizer dip recipes. They're easy to make. They stay warm through the whole party or football game, and everyone loves 'em. I'm mean really, who doesn't like a big melty bowl of cheese with awesome add-ins?!
This queso dip takes things to a whole new level of deliciousness. It tastes like the best green chile chicken enchilada you've ever had, but even cheesier… and in the best way possible. The cream cheese gives that tangy, creaminess that I love about enchiladas. Paired with tortilla chips, it's perfect. Not to mention your house is going to smell AMAZING!
One of my favorite shortcuts for this recipe is to pre-cook my chicken. I either cook off a chicken breast with dinner the night before or grab a rotisserie chicken from the store and shred 1/2 the chicken. You'll want about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of chicken total. You can also double this recipe and prepare it in a 5-quart slow cooker for a bigger crowd.
