Spicy Crockpot Queso Dip
Whether you want to feed a crowd, make something yummy to munch on during the Superbowl or simply prepare some comfort food, cheese dip is always a winner. This recipe is made with Cheddar Jack cheese, tomatoes, cream, green onions, spices and hot dogs, and everything is blended in the crockpot for a flavorful result. Slow cooking brings out all the flavors and blends everything together nicely.
If you prefer to make a vegetarian version you can omit to hot dogs from the recipe. You can also use reduced fat cream and cheese if you want to cut the fat content a little. Serve the finished dip straight from the crockpot so it stays warm and choose from tortilla chips or scoops to serve. You can even offer corn chips or kettle chips if you prefer, or vegetable sticks like carrot and celery. This dip can be spiced up as much as you wish and some people do like it really hot. Another option is to leave out the pepper sauce and use a milder cheese if you prefer a milder result.
This recipe makes 6 cups of dip which is enough for 10 people but if you are serving this to diehard cheese dip fans you might want to make more of it. If you are in a hurry this can be made on the stovetop but the flavor is slightly better when you use a crockpot, so we recommend you do. This spicy dip offers a nice change of pace from chilled dip recipes.
