Emily's Spicy Chicken Enchilada Dip

This simple dip is great for tailgates and parties. Basically you just dump all the ingredients into a saute pan and cook it for 15 minutes. It is very spicy but still just as good if you don't add the cayenne pepper. This recipe is actually the filling I use for my chicken enchiladas. To make those, just spoon dip in to 12 flour/corn tortillas, roll and place in glass baking dish, top with one can of Old El Paso mild green chile enchilada sauce and sharp cheddar. Bake for 30 mins on 350.
