Rolled Taco Dip is perfect for those Mexican snack cravings! Why waste the time rolling this up in a tortilla when you can eat it with tortilla chips!?!
This dip was made only because I was craving my Rolled Tacos but didn’t have tortillas to make them! I decided I would make the filling and use tortilla chips for a dip! It was amazing! Now every time I make my rolled tacos I double the recipe so I have rolled tacos and some extra filling for dip!
Making Rolled Taco Dip
Rolled Taco Dip is made with green salsa, cream cheese, chicken, pepper jack cheese, fresh cilantro and green onions. A squeeze of fresh lime juice and some Mexican seasonings take this dip over the top with great Mexican flavors!
This dip couldn’t be more simple to make. Just put your chopped/shredded chicken in a mixing bowl. Add your block of softened cream cheese, and green salsa and mix it up! Next, add your green onions and cilantro, and mix well. Last, add the lime juice, and seasonings and mix it again. Make sure it is all mixed well.
I use a greased 8×8 baking dish to bake this dip. Spread the rolled taco dip evenly into your dish. It should fill the pan pretty good! Let it heat in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. It just needs to be warmed and the cheeses need to melt. 20 minutes should heat it pretty good. You can leave it in closer to 30 minutes if you like the top a bit more crispy and browned. Sprinkle some extra cheese on top for the last few minutes if you want – I can’t imagine not wanting this but it’s totally optional!
I love this dip hot or cold! This dip is so delicious you can eat it cold right after mixing it up! I never can wait to dig into this dip and always find myself eating some before it’s put in the oven! But trust me when I say, the melty cheeses warmed up are amaze balls!
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!!
