Perfect Dip for Tailgating

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Today's post is #500 on my blog.  Guess this Southern Socialite has been doing a lot of rambling and entertaining, hopefully.  And what would make a great post for #500?  A recipe that's perfect to eat while watching football, of course.  Because that's what we are doing today — being lazy while watching football.

A while back, I asked for a recipe for an easy dip and my favorite cake baker, Carol Fanning, supplied me with this recipe.

1 large can chunk chicken (do not drain)
3 pkgs. softened cream cheese
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
2 eggs
1 tablespoon Tabasco
1 can chopped green chilies

Combine all ingredients in non-stick skillet and cook over low heat till cream cheese is melted, stirring often.  Make sure you stir in the eggs so they won't fry or scramble.  Pour into an 8 inch springform pan OR a greased 7x11 casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Immediately cover the top with 2 cups grated cheddar or Mexican cheese, 1 small jar of salsa, and chopped green onions (optional).  If you use the springform pan, let it cool before removing the ring... remove slowly so it won't "pull" the cheesecake.  Serve with crackers or chips. The springform pan gives a prettier presentation, but is so much easier in a casserole dish.

I used a casserole dish, mainly because I didn't want to wait to remove from the springform pan.  It's so good y'all!  ENJOY =)
