Football and dips go hand in hand, and this flavorful Chicken Taco Dip is no exception. Everyone loves it, young and old alike. Seriously, who can resist chip after chip full of taco-flavored sour cream, seasoned chicken breast, chopped tomatoes, and cheese with a generous sprinkling of cilantro?

We are pretty particular when it comes to the chicken we use in our recipes. That’s why we choose to partner with Gold’n Plump® as the taste of their chicken just can’t be matched. Plus their Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets are raised with No Antibiotics-Ever, and that is a big deal to us. By starting with great ingredients, we knew this Chicken Taco Dip would be a hit. You could even go so far as to say that the protein-rich chicken in this dip could double as a main dish. (Not that I know anything about eating Chicken Taco Dip for dinner….)

This easy Chicken Taco Dip tastes fabulous as is, but it can easily be altered to match your personal tastes. Love avocado? Add a layer of diced avocado that has been tossed in fresh lime juice. Are olives not your thing? Take them off and swap in some jalapeños instead. Not a cilantro fan? It tastes just as great without it. The sky is the limit with this versatile dip.

So what are you waiting for? Don’t make any ordinary taco dip. This Chicken Taco Dip is a sure-fire way to make your game day menu a hit with everyone.
