Tis the Season

College Football season has arrived!  Whether or not you like football, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this recipe.  My husband found it about 4 years ago on a Notre Dame blog and now it’s one of our must-haves during football season.

Chicken Jalapeno Dip     Print Recipe


2 Large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup sliced jalapenos (we like things spicy, so we add a little more)

1 medium fresh diced tomato

8 oz. cream cheese (leave out about 30 min before using, makes it easier to work with)

2 c. sharp cheddar, shredded

1 c. real mayo

2 c. monterey/colby jack, shredded


Boil the chicken breasts 10-12 minutes.  Shred after boiling.  Stir jalapenos, diced tomato, cream cheese, cheddar, & mayo together.  Add chicken and mix.  Empty into a baking dish (we use a shallow 8×11″ CorningWare baking dish) and distribute evenly.  Bake at 350 around 35 minutes.  Take out and pour colby jack on top.  Put back in oven 10-15 more minutes or until cheese is bubbling and starting to turn golden brown.  Take out and wait 5-10 minutes before digging into with tortilla chips.

Feel free to modify the recipe.  You could do a meatless version, maybe add some black beans as a replacement.  You could also use low-fat ingredients if you wish.

Enjoy this while watching your favorite team!  If you’re a Michigan fan, consider yourself lucky that an Iowa & Notre Dame fan have shared this recipe with you 🙂
