If you’re entertaining guests for the big game, this fajita dip recipe is the ultimate southwestern appetizer. A twist on classic nine-layer dip, this recipe uses chicken and bell peppers for a flavorful, hearty accompaniment to the game. Prepare this ahead of time and warm in the oven for a cheesy treat just in time for kickoff. If you have any leftovers, store in a Ziploc® Brand Container to serve the next day.

Fajita Dip

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 8 servings


1 pound boneless chicken breasts, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 (1.12 ounce) package fajita seasoning
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 (8 ounce) container light sour cream
1 (15 ounce) can low-sodium black beans rinsed and drained
3 cups shredded Mexican cheese
1 (14 ounce) container refrigerated guacamole
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
Chopped fresh cilantro or green onions (optional)


Preheat oven to 375° F. In a large Ziploc® Brand Bag combine chicken, bell peppers and fajita seasoning and let stand 30 minutes. Remove and sauté in hot oil over medium-high heat in a large, lightly greased skillet five to 10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove and let cool.

In a medium bowl stir together tomatoes with green chiles and sour cream; set aside.

Layer black beans, 1 cup shredded cheese, chicken mixture, 1 cup shredded cheese, sour cream mixture, guacamole, tomatoes and remaining cheese.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and if desired top with cilantro or green onions. Then serve warm with tortilla chips.
