Review This Recipe
I made this dip for a football party and everyone loved it. I couldn't find smoked chicken in the store so I used a thick slice of deli smoked turkey and shredded that and it turned out fine. I also bought and extra loaf of bread for dippers and I was glad I did. I also toasted the dippers in the oven for a little added crunch. You should make this dip!!
I made the Green Chile Bread Bowl Fondue for my dinner club. It was so easy to make, bake and serve. My guests just loved it. I doubled the batch which I made the day before our dinner. The day of the dinner I cut up the bread and put it together right before baking. I will be making this again.
A huge hit!
If you make this for a get-together, be prepared to give out the recipe. My 7-year-old helped me make it for a small group (about 7 people) and there was more then enough to go around. And everyone loved it! A few changes I have made are: I've added a couple finely chopped jalapeno peppers, and a few dashes of hot sauce (people I know like their food spicy). I also use a small can of flaked chicken instead of the smoked chicken. It's easier and cheaper, and still tastes great. Also, it's a good idea to serve it with a few different breads (for variaty).
This is a great hit at our monthly family dinner I know I will make this again and everybody wanted the recipe. So I did share the recipe.
I have been making this for small get-togethers as well as for big parties for a few years now and it always gets great reviews! I make one adjustment though. Instead of 1 teaspon of worchestershire sauce, I add 1 tablespoon and then I shake the bottle a few more times into the dip and it comes out very smoky and flavorful! I also slice up a sourdough baguette, a multigrain one and a jalapeno one for dipping. They all go very well with the dip.

I made this for a party and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it. It was easy to make too.
A friend made this for a fondue get-together. We were all so impressed that we have begged her to make it again on several occasions. We skip the bread bowls & just use yummy bread to dip in it. There are NEVER any leftovers.
What a fun recipe!
This was a huge hit with my family! Everyone loved this super delcious dish.
Great Crowd Pleaser
I made this dip as a new addition to "Girl's Night." Everyone was standing around the bowl until it was empty. It was quick, easy, and a huge hit.
This was an amazing dish to bring to a party. Everybody loved it!! I have since given the recipe out several times.

This was really good I didn't put the chicken in though and I had to heat it longer than 50 min so it would be nice an bubbly.Everyone LOVED! it Praise the Lord! I think I may try it with low fat items next time and put the chicken in it and serve it with salad for dinner.
This dip was the best! I am so glad that I tried it. I made it for a football gathering and it was a hit! It's easy to make too. I even let my step-children help.
Green Chile Bread Bowl Fondue
I tried this recipe, however I kept it more vegetarian and left the smoked chicken out. I added a few drops of tabasco sauce witch added a little more spice to the recipe. More for the hot California climate. The next time I may make a different variety and use anchovies instead of the smoked chicken. However the recipe was very well recieved by my family, it will be a regular standby, Thank
