Chicken Enchilada Dip Recipe

This slow-cooker dip turns a classic weeknight dinner dish, Chicken Enchiladas, into an appetizer that is perfect for your next weekend fiesta or game day gathering. The best part about this dip recipe? Only 10 minutes of hands on prep time and then your slow cooker will take if from there, which will give you the rest of the day to prepare for your guests. The layers of corn tortillas will cook into this dish and thicken it. You won't see them after they're cooked, but you will taste their authentic Mexican flavor in every bite. If you are short on time, you can always pick up a rotisserie chicken at the store to save some time. The creamy and cheesy chicken will serve as the perfect base for the beans and tomatoes. While the dip is still warm, cover the bottom of your serving plate with lettuce and top with chicken, followed by the beans and tomatoes. Make sure you have plenty of tortilla chips to serve with this dip, because your guests will want to enjoy every last bite.
