Ingredients

  • 2
    cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1
    can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1
    can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 1/2
    cup chopped green onions
  • 1
    package (0.85 oz) Old El Paso™ chicken taco seasoning mix
  • 1/4
    teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne), if desired
  • 1
    package (16 oz) Kraft™ Velveeta™ original prepared cheese product, cut in 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2
    tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Tortilla chips, as desired

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, mix chicken, tomatoes, chiles, green onions, taco seasoning mix and red pepper.
  • 2
    Top chicken mixture with Velveeta™ cheese; do not stir. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours or until cheese melts and mixture is hot (at least 165°F in center).
  • 3
    Stir.
  • 4
    Top with cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.

  • Placing the cheese on top of the chicken mixture keeps the chicken moist and also keeps the cheese from burning if it touches any hot spots in the slow cooker.
  • If you’d like keep the dip in the slow cooker on Warm setting for your party, stir cilantro into the dip instead of sprinkling over the top.
