Hot and Spicy Chicken Cream Cheese Dip

I decided to make a variation on the shrimp dip with the leftover cream cheese and green onions.  I was also inspired by one of my favorite dips (I call “crack dip”) which combines 1 lb sausage with a can of Rotel (diced tomatoes) and a block of cream cheese (8oz).  I decided to make a variation with chicken.  Since all I had on hand was a can of plain diced tomatoes, I added a hefty 2-3T of Franks Red Hot sauce, a dash of cumin, and ground red pepper.  I added the leftover green onions from the shrimp dip as well because it is one of those annoying items you must buy in a bunch and only need one or two.  Turned out great and all the ingredients came from my freezer and pantry!
