Chicken Nacho Dip starts with cheese and sour cream for a creamy base, shredded chicken and black beans for heartiness, and jalapenos for just a bit of heat. The green onion and taco seasoning that’s added takes this dip to whole new levels of yum!
Serve this amazing dip during football season, as an appetizer at a party, or at your next backyard barbecue and everyone who tastes it will absolutely rave. 🙂

Slather it over a warm tortilla for a tasty roll-up, on top of crispy tortilla chips for heavenly nachos, or drench it over Mexican chicken or steak! No matter which way you choose to serve this Chicken Nacho Dip, you can’t go wrong!
HOW TO ADJUST THE THICKNESS OF CHICKEN NACHO DIP
If your dip ends up too thick, no worries! Just add in a splash of milk (or two) until you reach the desired consistency.
CAN YOU ADJUST THE HEAT LEVEL?
Of course! Here’s how to spice things up or tone things down:
- For more heat:
- Use a hotter variety of taco seasoning.
- Use Hot Rotel instead of Mild.
- Add in more sliced jalapeno.
- Add a dash or two of your favorite hot sauce.
- For less heat:
- Use the mild Rotel or freshly diced tomatoes instead to completely leave out the green chiles.
- Omit the jalapenos or just use less.
CAN YOU USE BEEF INSTEAD OF CHICKEN?
You definitely can! You could also try pork or turkey sausage as well.
Here’s a couple other ingredients that would taste amazing in this nacho dip.
- Cream cheese: for an even creamier and richer dip, add in a block of cream cheese.
- Olives: for those of you who love olives, they work perfectly with this dip.
- Refried beans: if you’re not a fan of black beans, refried beans work just as nicely. Just know they’ll make the dip even thicker and creamier.
- Cilantro: because why not? It’s a Mexican herb classic.
- Cheddar cheese: for a richer and more sharp flavor, just add in some cheddar cheese.
