After reading other reviews, I came up with my own revisions to this recipe that make it even more delicious. I marinade the chicken overnight in a package of fajita mix with lime juice. For remaining ingredients, I use the 8 oz. of cream cheese as the original states, 4 oz. mayonnaise, 4 oz. sour cream, the cheddar, chiles and jalapeno as recipe states, add a can of rinsed black beans, 3 sliced green onions, 1 small clove of minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Delicious!


I am SO glad I didn't look at any of the reviews until after I had this mixed up. Given that the majority of the reviewers substituted sour cream for the mayonnaise called for I might have done the same. It makes me wonder if so many did that simply because, well, everybody else did. Then there were others who said this was greasy or bland and made significant changes to the recipe. I was nervous that since I made this just as the recipe directed that it was going to be a mayonnaisy, greasy, tasteless flop. I needn't have worried, because let me tell you, this stuff is good! No, I mean this stuff is GOOD. It is creamy, and chickeny and not greasy and not mayonnaisy (in fact, had I not put it in there myself I wouldn't have even known there was any). This is so nicely flavored, and certainly doesn't require any messing with to make it better. Once out of the oven (believe it or not I just heated it in the microwave for a few minutes and it turned out perfectly!) I plopped some sour cream on the top and sprinkled it with chopped green onion. This is a dip I'd be proud to take or serve anywhere or anytime I have a need to make or bring something awesome good. Perfect, flawless recipe.


Hi, this is Kelley that posted this recipe. I posted a similar comment before, but just wanted to put it in again. I've noticed that a lot of people have noted that the taste of mayo is a little strong, and some have substituted 8 oz mayo and 8 oz sour cream instead, thinking the recipes calls for 16 oz of mayo. The recipe only calls for 8 oz of mayo total. If you do want to include some sour cream, I would suggest 4 oz mayo and 4 oz sour cream. Thanks for all the great reviews!
