How to make slow cooker bean and cheese dip

Print this recipe
With football season coming up, I’m pulling out all of my recipes that are easy to make and great for feeding a hungry crowd. This time of year, my slow cooker is essential. I throw together the recipe below a couple of hours before kickoff and then I can let it sit on “keep warm” all the way to the end of the fourth quarter.
You can make this dish as spicy or as mild as you like. I like to add a cup of hot salsa along with the other ingredients for an extra kick. Or you could add ground cayenne or chipotle chile, or a couple of diced chipotles in adobo sauce, which would add great sweet-smoky flavor. Any way you make it, it’s a guaranteed touchdown.
