Chicken Cream Cheese Dip recipe for Superbowl food
Can you believe that the SuperBowl is just around the corner? Literally just a few days away! I always get excited about the Super Bowl..
Because of the food and commercials. Not the football, nope! The food and commercials. 😉
I love getting together with family and friends, enjoying each other’s company, and tasting all of the yummy treats everyone brought!
There are 2 essential things that make up every good Super Bowl snack, in my opinion. First, little prep. We are talking 5 minutes, max. Second, can be eaten while sitting on the couch, without making an absolute mess.
This is why I love chip dips so much. Everyone grabs a bowl for themselves, dip on one side, chips on the other. Bada-boom-bada-bang!
Let me tell you, this is the dip for your Super Bowl party this year!
How to Make Chicken Cream Cheese Chip Dip
Crack Chicken Dip is made up of 6 ingredients. Cream cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing mix, cheese, chicken and bacon.
First, cream together the cream cheese and sour cream. This works best if the cream cheese is at room temperature. Remember though, we want 5 minutes of prep time! If you forgot to take yours out of the fridge, place it in a ziplock bag, squeezing all of the air out before zipping it shut. Set the baggie covered cream cheese into a bowl of hot water and let it sit for a minute or so. This will soften it right up for you!
After the cream cheese and sour cream are mixed together, add in the cheese and ranch dressing mix. Mix until well combined and smooth.
Next, fold in shredded chicken. You can totally prepare the shredded chicken beforehand in the crockpot or Instant Pot, but to make this extremely easy, you could use a rotisserie chicken.
Spread the mixture out into either an 8×8 pan or a pie plate.
Top the dip with a little more shredded cheese and crumbled bacon. I cooked my bacon up in the air fryer as I was mixing the other ingredients, but you could totally use bacon bits or microwavable bacon from Costco.
Toss in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the dip is HOT!
Serve with potato chips, tortilla chips, slices of French bread.. seriously, whatever your heart desires!
