Happy April, folks! I hope your March was fantastic and that you’re ready to take on a new month. April is one of my very favorite months, for lots of reasons. One of those reasons being, EASTER candy! I don’t know why, but chocolate in the shape of an egg is just so much more satisfying then a boring ol’ circle. Reese’s Eggs and Cadbury Eggs in any size or style are my favorite. Put them on a Rice Krispies treat, and you’ve got something awesome (Like these)! What kind of Easter candy are you drawn to?

Today’s tried and true has nothing to do with Easter candy, or chocolate, or eggs of any kind. I just can’t mention April without thinking about how happy the candy makes me. 🙂 You know what else makes me happy?! Dip! I’ve mentioned before that we’re all big dippers in this family. Dipping just seems to make things taste better.

With Cinco de Mayo happening right after April, we wanted to make sure we shared some yummy recipes for you guys to try for the fun holiday. We love our Green Chili Enchiladas, and after seeing a chicken enchilada dip on Recipe Runner, we knew we wanted to try it! We like the taste of sour cream in recipes better than greek yogurt and decided to do all Monterey Jack cheese and loved how it turned out. The recipe can be made in the crock pot like the original, but we decided to bake it in the oven and it turned out delicious. If you love all the flavors of green chili enchiladas, you’ll love this cheesy dip! Here is the recipe…
