I had this dip for the first time years ago. I don’t remember where I was- some ladies’ thing somewhere, doing something, I don’t know. But what I do remember is this dip.

I was smitten with the loads of cheese and chicken topped with buttery pecans. Served all hot and melty with either corn chips or as a spread on toasted bread, I thought it might have been just about the best thing I had ever eaten!

Of course, what makes it better is that it is super easy to make, and it’s one of those crazy good dishes that somehow seems to stay a secret. So when you show up at your best friend’s door with this dip in hand, it’s going to be that new dish that everyone just has to have a little more of.
