Chicken Enchilada Dip

Enchiladas are my absolute favorite food, so I am always looking for ways to incorporate the delicious flavors into other dishes.  This Chicken Enchilada Dip was a HUGE hit at our last family party, and it was the first dish that was eaten entirely! It has all the flavors you love in a chicken enchilada, but it’s in dip form, which is both tasty and dangerous! You could literally sit in front of the dish and dip chip after chip until you want to explode! (Trust me, I did just that.)

Not only is this enchilada dip delicious, it is also so simple to make. In fact, you might have all the ingredients you need on hand like I did! Enchilada sauce, corn, black beans, chicken and cheese – nothing fancy, nothing crazy!
