Chicken, Bacon & Green Chili Dip

So how was your Mother's Day?  

Mine was set up to be just like I wanted.  Simple.  Just some time with my family and friends.  No gifts.  Just some homemade cards from my kids.

My 8 year old decided to get me a gift, however.  The gift of lice.  

I discovered it sitting next to her in church as we snuggled on the pew.  Yuck!  So, my quiet Mother's Day was spent picking nits for 4 1/2 hours, washing every piece of bedding in the house and all the unwashed laundry.  I bagged up everything I couldn't wash then vacuumed everything possible.  So much for quiet and simple :)
This dip is a mainstay in my fridge for days like Sunday, when I have zero time to make myself something healthy to eat.  There is always a container of this prepared and ready to go for a quick lunch or dinner.  I know it is a dip, but I use it as a meal because it is packed with so much protein.

My kids love it as well, but it is a bit spicy.  If you aren't a fan of spicy, just let it sit overnight in the fridge and the heat mellows considerably but I wish I could tell you why?  It just does.

I serve it with veggies at my house, but it would be a home run on crackers, pita chips or toasted bread.  Just not low-carb like with the veggies :)

Chicken, Bacon & Green Chili Dip
16 ounce container Nordica Green Chili Sour Cream dip
2-10 ounce cans canned chicken breast
1/2 C cooked and crumbled bacon - This is the precooked version I use

1.  Drain the two cans of chicken breast in a strainer.
2.  Combine all three ingredients in a medium bowl and mix together well.  You will need to use your spoon to break up some of the larger pieces of chicken breast.
3.  Serve immediately for the hottest flavor, or let it sit overnight for the heat to mellow.

This sounds amazing, but the Green Chili Dip you used is not available in my area. So, I was wondering if you have a homemade recipe to share or are willing to create.

I don't have a homemade recipe for the dip. Sorry. You can certainly use a different flavored dip, especially one that you feel would go along well with the chicken and bacon.

My daughter brought home the same "gift". I highly recommend Nyda lice treatment. It is basically the same stuff as in baby's gas drops (Oval) and it isn't absorbed by the skin, so I din't feel so badly using it (I had already used 3 chemical treatments before using the Nyda, so I was hesitant about using another one or getting a stronger one by prescription). It has a better "egg kill" rate than the other chemicals, which is the whole key to the matter (and I was a very careful and consistent nit picker much to my daughter's dismay :).
On another note, I enjoy your website very much, having just stumbled on it through Pinterest. Thanks for the great recipes!
