Creamy Pepper Jack Chicken Dip

As I'm sure you can tell, we love a good dip around here. Here's another dip for your next gameday tailgate or holiday get together.  I combined parts of some of my favorites and think it turned out delicious! 

Creamy Pepper Jack Chicken Dip
4  chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2  (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2  cup milk
1/2  cup mayonnaise (can use light)
1  red bell pepper, finely chopped
3  tablespoons jalapeno pepper, minced (optional, leave out if you don't want too much "heat")
2  tablespoons lemon juice
2  tablespoons Frank's Hot Sauce
2  teaspoons garlic powder
1  1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4  teaspoon pepper
1  (8-ounce) package shredded pepper-jack cheese


Combine softened cream cheese with the mayo and milk.  Mix in the shredded chicken, red pepper, jalapeno pepper (if using), lemon juice, Frank's hot sauce, garlic powder, salt & pepper.  Mix well and then add in shredded pepper-jack cheese.  Place in a pyrex and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 - 35 minutes until hot and bubbly.


Enjoy!

  10. Any tips on how you could adapt this to be kept in a crockpot to keep it warm for awhile?

    1. Hello Wendy. It is fine if you put it in a crock pot on low. I have done that rather than bake it in the oven. I would just watch it and if it looks like it is getting too hot just switch the slow cooker off and give it a stir every now and then. When I make it, it never seems to last very long!
