King Ranch Chicken Dip..Entertaining for the Holidays

I just love having family and friends over for the holidays. It's good to keep things simple and allow your company to feel relaxed and have the ability to help themselves to the appetizers.

If you need something that will be a hit at your next holiday party, take along this King Ranch Chicken Dip. Most everyone has tried a King Ranch Chicken casserole, but honey, putting all of those cheesy ingredients in a dip and tasting it on a chip.....Wow-za!!! Men adore this dish!

King Ranch Chicken Dip
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese
1 (10.75-ounce) can cream of chicken soup
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chiles, drained
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper to skillet; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until onion starts to soften. Add cream cheese and soup; reduce heat to low, and stir until cream cheese melts. Remove from heat.
Add chicken, 11/2 cups Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, oregano, cumin, and chili powder to cream cheese mixture, stirring until well combined. Spoon into a 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over dip. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips.
