Cream cheese, shredded chicken, a packet of ranch dressing and salsa, isn’t that a a great lineup of flavors? When you serve this easy Chicken Ranch Dip appetizer at your next party be ready to share the recipe, because they’ll ask.
This Chicken Ranch Dip appetizer is a crowd pleaser. I can attest to that because it pleased the crowd when Larry et al were here for our back yard BBQ. Everyone commented on how good it was, and everyone asked for the recipe.
Only 4 ingredients! How simple can it get? As soon as the cream cheese comes to room temperature and soft enough to stir everything up, it’s ready in about 5 minutes. It’s easy because it’s made with a can of white meat chicken, a package of Ranch Dressing and bottled salsa. I used my home made salsa recipe, but use your favorite brand. Done…really, it’s that easy. For your convenience, this post includes affiliate links.
Right before serving, sprinkle with Chimayo Chili Powder. Omit if you don’t have Chamayo, most chili powders are pungent strong and would change the light and perfect flavor of this dip. If you don’t have Chamayo and would still like a sprinkle of red, how about a little bit of paprika? Serve it up and be ready to share the recipe. Everyone will ask.
And now for this incredible Chicken Ranch Dip:
- 2-8 oz . packages Philadelphia cream cheese softened to room temperature
- 1 tablespoon large can of white meat chicken drained, reserving 1 liquid to add to thin the dip
- 1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dessing mix
- 1/4 cup to 1/2 salsa I started with 1/4 cup and added salsa until I liked the flavor combination depending on heat and flavor
Mix all ingredients together until well-blended. Serve with crackers or vegetables.
