In Search of a chicken enchilada-ish dippy thingie

A while back I had an appetizer which had a tex-mex-ish quality to it. I know it had shredded chicken and it may have had beans, definitely had cheese. It was served warm in a baking dish. The person that made it had sent it along to the party with their husband so I was unable to ask them about the ingredients. I figured it would eventually pop up somewhere else, as tasty things tend to but I have never come across it at any parties since then. I don't believe it had any tortillas in the dish, they were just used for dipping. Anybody have any ideas on the other ingredients? I've found a few recipes on the web for enchiladas but that is not what I am looking for. Thanks for any assistance.
No idea since I have not had it, but a can of enchilada sauce mixed with shredded chicken and maybe some minced, sweated onions would probably be a good starting point. Maybe sprinkle a little Cotija on it, too.
A few possible contenders:
There are a lot of recipes that come up with a search on Pinterest, but quite a few duplicates and most seem to use similar ingredients, e.g. mayo, cream cheese, and chiles.
i make chicken enchilada filling in a crock, and sometimes, i mix in some cream cheese, sprinkle with cheddar, and bake and eat with wheat thins. trashy, maybe.....but really good.
i cook a couple chicken breasts in some salsa, cumin, and chili powder for 4 hours in the crock on low. i use frozen chicken breasts.
