Chicken Enchilada Dip

There’s really only one reason to watch the Superbowl. The food.

And the commercials, I guess.

It’s so rare that your team will make it to the Superbowl, that really, all those parties are just excuses to get together, snack all day, and have a few laughs. And knowing us, we won’t watch the game at all, but you can sign me up for the snacking.

And there’s nothing wrong with that.

One of my favorite dips is a recipe from my mom – her Chicken Enchilada Dip. I made this a few weeks ago for a house warming party for some friends, and there wasn’t any left in the dish when we headed home.

It’s completely addicting on tortilla chips and would make a killer casserole with some rice or pasta added, too.

Do you have any Superbowl foods you make every year?

And did your team make it this year?! Mine did not, but it’s okay. They’ll be there next year, and I’ll still be snacking.

  1. I’m actually a big football fan in general, so I get excited about watching the game too! Although the whole experience is more fun with great food :)

  2. I lloovvee Superbowl ads! As an Ad/PR major, I find it endlessly entertaining and interesting to see what the companies choose to go with. Last year it was a little weird. I’m hoping this year’s are better.

  14. I made this on Super Bowl (with a few tweaks due to thinking I remembered the recipe by heart-ha!) and it was fab. We are spreading the leftovers onto whole wheat tortillas w/ a bit of extra cheese & beans for quesadillas. Thanks for the great idea!
