Green Chile Dip – Only 5 Ingredients

This Green Chile Dip is extremely easy to make and incredibly delicious. It is one of the best appetizers for a party, being able to feed a crowd, and it is loved by everyone who tries it! With only 5 ingredients, plus salt and pepper, you can have this super creamy dip from the fridge to the oven in just minutes. The green chiles give the dip a distinctive flavor without being overpowering, making it friendly for adults and kids alike!

Green Chile Dip Recipe

This Green Chile Dip was originally inspired by my Green Chile Chicken Bake. I love cheesy dips like Spicy Pimento Cheese, and I knew this would be similar but with even more flavor by baking it together. So I worked on bringing this new dip to life and boy, was it good!

The result was an instant favorite and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!

What is a green chile?

The key ingredient in this dip is canned green chiles, but don’t worry, this recipe isn’t spicy so it is great for a crowd.

Green chiles are a 6-7 inch fleshy pepper that ranges from mild to spicy with a distinct fragrant flavor. The southwestern United States, especially New Mexico, and regions of Mexico are the primary producers of these in North America. You can buy them fresh at the store or canned.

Almost all of my recipes that use green chiles on Easy Family Recipes will use canned green chiles. I really love them as an ingredient to cook with because you get a ton of flavor plus some extra veggies when you use them. You can buy the canned green chiles already chopped so it makes for a super easy way to cook.

How to make Green Chile Dip

Here I will highlight the ingredients and instructions with my notes, tips, and tricks I have learned along the way.

Make sure to scroll on down to the bottom of this post for the recipe card for the full recipe!

Ingredients

  • Cream cheese– Regular cream cheese is used, but light would also work. Fat-free doesn’t melt well so it is best to avoid it.
  • Sharp cheddar– Sharp cheddar is important as it gives the most flavor with less cheese.
  • Old El Paso mild chopped green chiles- Old El Paso brand is preferred because their chiles are a bit more crushed, combining well into dishes. If you don’t have Old El Paso, you can use whatever you have on hand.
  • Spices- We use a combination of garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to flavor the dip.

Recipe Step by Step

Combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green chiles, and seasonings in a bowl. Make sure the cream cheese is already softened so that it will all combine smoothly.

## How to serve Green Chile Cheese Dip

Green Chile Dip is great on just about anything!  I made this for the first day and dipped chips and veggies in it, and then a couple of days later I reheated the dip and then used it to make nachos, which were just about the most incredible nachos we have ever made at home.

For a low carb “healthy” version use mini sweet peppers cut in half as the chips and layer this on with some shredded cheese, corn, black beans, and guacamole!

Here are a few things I think would be especially delicious with this dip:

– Chips- I really liked the blue corn with it especially
– Crackers- Brenton makes a nice gluten free crackers with beans that works really well with this!
– Celery
– Carrots
– Bell Peppers
– Bread sticks
– Apples
– Tortillas
