Crock Pot Cheese Dip



This cheese dip recipe is always a favorite at family functions and potlucks, and is so easy to make.  It comes from, of all places, the owner's manual of my Kitchen Selectives slow cooker (though I have modified it slightly).  It can be served with chips, veggies, pretzels, or anything else you can think of to dip in.  Also, this recipe is easily doubled if you'd like a bigger batch.

Crock Pot Cheese Dip

Ingredients:

2 cans (4 oz. each) diced green chilies
4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup salsa
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Jack cheese
1 cup sour cream
3 ounces cream cheese

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.  Cook on high for 1 to 2 hours, until melted and hot.  Stir before serving.  Serve on low heat, stirring occasionally.

Additions/modifications:
  • Add 1/4 pound cooked ground beef
  • Try different types of cheeses, such as mozzarella, Pepper Jack, or muenster
  • Add 2 cups re-fried beans
  • Add 1 cup chopped veggies, such as broccoli, asparagus, or tomatoes
  • Add 1/2 cup of your favorite beer
  • Add 2 cups chili
  • For some added spice, add 1 chopped jalapeno pepper
