  • Author: Emily
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 servings 1x


This dip is absolutely packed full of the savory flavors of Hatch green chile, paired with seasoned chicken breast and ooey gooey melty cheese. Indulge without guilt- it’s only 180 calories per 1/2 cup serving!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup prepared green chile sauce
  • 4 ounces roasted, peeled & chopped Hatch green chile
  • 1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 4 ounces low-fat room temperature cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons green chile powder (or 1 teaspoon red chile powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, divided


  1. Set your oven to heat to 350 degrees F. Spray a 1 and 1/2 quart baking dish or larger with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment: add in the green chile sauce, chopped Hatch green chile, yogurt, cream cheese, cumin, chile powder, salt, shredded chicken, half the mozzarella cheese, and half the Monterrey Jack cheese. Mix until combined and no large chunks of cream cheese remain, about 3-5 minutes. (Alternatively, combine in a large bowl by hand with a wooden spoon.)
  3. Empty chicken dip mixture into your prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheeses evenly over the top and bake in the oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, bubbly on the edges and slightly golden brown. Remove from heat and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving with tortilla chips (blue corn is fantastic with this recipe) or pita bread.
