Can we all agree that the dips are the most important part of any party? Besides the desserts, of course.

If you lose me at a party, chances are high that you’ll find me next to the chips and dip. I love a chilled dip like this 7-LAYER DIP and reader favorite Jalapeno Ranch Dip but sometimes, only a bubbling hot baked dip appetizer will do.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Chicken Taco Dip is best served warm fresh from the oven!

If you want to make this in advance, I would follow all the steps in the recipe up until baking. Cover the unbaked dip and store in the fridge.

When ready to serve, bake the dip for about 25 minutes–or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Don’t forget to serve it with lots of crunchy tortilla chips for dipping!

What kind of cheese is best for taco dip?

I use a Mexican cheese blend with Colby, Monterey and Cheddar cheese in this chicken dip. It has a nice balance of sharp and mild flavors.

If you don’t have a Mexican cheese blend handy, you can make this dip with shredded cheddar, Monterey Jack or Colby Jack instead.
