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!

Wondering about doing this in the oven, or if you were to do it in the slow cooker would you still do all of the stove top steps first? I need to make it ahead of hand, and heat it up later on at a party so wondering how I could make it ahead of time and reheat with best results.

Thanks!

I love the “you want this” on the picture. You are so right – I WANT THIS! I think I could eat that whole bowl of dip, and would love to wash it down with one of those delicious margs! And I love that the VEEV isn’t super high in calories…that means I can eat more dip!

I did some damage with this dip. I ate the leftovers for lunch the last two days! I was good and didn’t have a margarita at lunch on a weekday. That’s for dinner ;) Thank you, Cate! xo

Margarita Day?! I had no clue that was coming up! I definitely want to celebrate with one of those margs in your gorgeous pictures, Andi! I’m totally intrigued that the Vita Frute is made with acai berries, because I’m a big fan of those. And THAT DIP! I need it in my life!

I think you can faintly taste the acaí berries in these margaritas. You should give them a try! Thanks, Ashlyn :)

It’s nice enough today–If I was lucky enough to be home—for me to be
sitting on my deck with that margarita eating chips and that fabulous dip.
I wouldn’t feel guilty, because I would be gardening. Obviously we are having a lovely day in the Pacific NW.

Andi

Yes, gardening is exercise, and these margaritas are low in calories. No guilt required. ;) Thanks, Carol!

Looks yummy and easy, which makes it perfect! My first thought was to put it into a tortilla – great minds and all that, right? :)
Regarding the Marg mix – aren’t you GF? Does the wheat product cause any issues?

Angie S

Also, as I was getting ready to go to Sam’s, I checked on Ibotta, and they have a $6 rebate on the Vita Frute products!

Andi

Ooh that’s a great deal! I’ll have to look it up!

Andi

You are right that I’m GF, but I don’t have an actual wheat allergy and seem to be able to get away with eating or drinking trace/small amounts of wheat. This didn’t bother me, and I even sneak a bite of my kids mac and cheese or other off-limits foods now and then just to get a taste of the good stuff ;) Thank you, Angie!
