Creamy Jalapeno Chicken Dip
This Creamy Jalapeno Chicken Dip is always a crowd pleaser and no one ever knows it’s Dairy Free! It takes just minutes to make and is packed with shredded chicken, jalapenos, chopped tomatoes, onion and spices. This dip is creamy, slightly spicy and so so good, and best of all, it just happens to be Paleo, Whole30, Keto and Dairy Free!
I am a total sucker for a creamy dip and love that they can easily be made compliant on Whole30. This Jalapeno Chicken Dip is full of so much flavour and really delicious. I actually served this to a big group of junk food loving friends and no one had any clue that it was Dairy Free or Paleo.
This Jalapeno Chicken Dip can be made a day or two in advance and is truthfully just as good cold as it is served bubbly hot.
I like serving it with carrots, cucumber, red pepper slices and thinly cut daikon radish, but crackers or tortilla chips are also great for those not going grain free.
For the shredded chicken you can use any leftover chicken you might have in the fridge, or alternatively use rotisserie chicken. If you aren’t a fan of chicken I think that shrimp or prawns would also work well instead.
Whether it’s a Sunday football spread, drinks with friends or you are just craving something creamy with a bit of spice, this jalapeno chicken dip really ticks all of the boxes.

This dip blew me away! It is so tasty and creamy, it really does taste like a queso dip! This is my new favorite dip!
Haha so happy to hear that!
Soooooo glad I found this. Great.
Happy to hear that you enjoyed it Ashlee!
Can plain Greek yogurt be a substitute for the mayo?
I haven’t tried it to be honest so I can’t guarantee it would work. That being said I think it would likely still taste good.
I first tried this recipe as an app at a party we had. it was a huge hit and we now make it as a dinner. we love to use plantain chips to dip it with! its great to use up any left over chicken!
Just wondering – can this be served cold or does it need to be kept warm? If warm, do you think it would work in a small crockpot on low for a party food item?
So good. Devoured by adults and the kids. Next time, I am doubling the recipe.
My son made this for Thanksgiving Day appetizer; I immediately asked for the recipe. It was spicy, but not too hot, and the creamy texture went well with the crunchy vegetable dippers. This is definitely a keeper!
This dip is INCREDIBLE! No one ever has any idea its Dairy Free which is amazing.
