Try out this Fajita Chicken Cream Cheese Dip at your next party or game day gathering!
You know I love margaritas. LOVE. I usually make my traditional authentic margaritas, and sometimes I like to get fancy and make blue margaritas. As long as fresh lime juice, tequila, and agave nectar are involved, I’m one happy lady.
Nothing goes better with a margarita than chips and dip, right? That’s why I’m bringing you this easy, scrumptious Fajita Chicken Cream Cheese Dip for your dipping pleasure.
This easy dip has all the tasty components of chicken fajitas plus monterey jack and cream cheese for double the cheesy goodness. It is so dang tasty! We ate it for dinner actually since it has chicken and vegetables in there. (Did you know bell peppers are a superfood?)
My husband used it to fill soft tacos instead of eating it as a dip, so that’s another option for this recipe. You could even serve it on top of a bed of rice and black beans. I’m getting hungry just thinking about all the possibilities for this chicken cheese dip. I hope you love it as much as we did!Print
