Last Minute Recipe


I'm sitting here this morning, enjoying the fire—our last morning cool enough to have one—and another Christmas movie, while I'm working on menus for this week and the grocery list. One chick is back home in the nest already. More arrive today, and the last ones tomorrow.

We are planning to have appetizers on Christmas Eve after we get home from church. And I wanted to make the hot chicken dip we enjoyed a couple of years ago. I went to the recipe index here on the blog to find the recipe. And it WASN'T THERE! I have never posted this easy recipe. I'm fixing that right now.

My cousin Lynn shared this recipe with me and told me that whole family loves it. It was a hit with our folks, too. It's one of those stir-it-up-and-leave-it kind of recipes. I'm putting it here, without a photo (because I won't make it until Christmas Eve.) Now I'll be able to find it easily next time.


2 (8-oz) blocks of cream cheese
2 (12.5-oz) cans chicken, drained (mine were 10-oz)
1 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 medium bottle Texas Pete, or to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a crockpot. Serve with Scoops or Fritos.

The gentleman who gave Lynn the recipe told her that he melts the cream cheese in the crockpot, then adds the other ingredients.

Keep this recipe in mind in you need a quick easy recipe for your holiday feasting. Thanks, Lynn!


  1. Yum! The dip sounds delicious. Your living room looks ready for little ones with the toys on the table and I have to say that ai noticed the red and black checked wrapping paper. The red and black checks are my favorite plaid. Happy Holidays!

    1. The little ones are all tucked in bed this early morning. They arrived last night. The tempo here at the farm has picked up. Mommy & Big Sister are singing at church on Christmas Eve. And I'm playing for them! Must find time to practice.


I love it when you say hello here! Next best thing to stopping by for a visit.
