3 Easy Slow Cooker Dip Recipes

Updated on September 3, 2011

Are you looking for a great warm dip recipe that's easy to prepare and serve? Whether you want to make a tasty snack for your family, are throwing a party, or are in charge of bringing an appetizer to a party or pot luck dinner, consider using your slow cooker to prepare a terrific dip recipe that everyone who has a chance to try it is sure to love.

A slow cooker is the perfect solution for preparing and serving warm dip recipes. All you need to do is place a few ingredients in the appliance, turn it on, and walk away. When the dip is heated through, simply stir it and serve with a appropriate type of chips, crackers, or raw veggies.

A few delicious slow cooker dip recipes that you may want to try are:

Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip

Ingredients

  • 1 box of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 8 ounce blocks of cream cheese
  • ½ cup of prepared Ranch dressing
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 envelope of Lipton or Knorr vegetable soup mix
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)

Instructions:

Place all items in slow cooker. Turn heat to low. Allow to cook for 2 – 3 hours. Stir and serve. This dip tastes great served with crackers, as well as with corn chips. It's also a delicious side dish.

Queso Bacon Dip

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds of Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 pound of bacon pieces (packaged, or cook your own and crumble it)

Instructions:

Place all items in a slow cooker. Turn heat to low. Allow to cook for 2 – 3 hours. Stir and serve. Consider serving with tortilla chips, corn chips, crackers, or raw vegetables. It's also a great dip or topping for quesadillas.

Variation:

Use crumbled cooked sausage or diced cooked ham instead of bacon.

Simple Spicy Bean Dip

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 ounce can of refried beans
  • 1 cup of salsa
  • 1 cup of shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • ¼ of a teaspoon of ground cumi

Instructions:

Place all items in your slow cooker. Turn heat to low. Allow to simmer for 2 – 3 hours. Stir and serve. This dip tastes best with tortilla chips or corn chips. This recipe may also be used as a burrito filling or tostada topping.

Slow Cooker Dip Serving Tip

If your slow cooker has a "warm" setting, you can keep the dish warm for people to enjoy throughout the afternoon or evening. Even if your unit doesn’t have this feature, you can leave it set to low for quite some time, as long as you stir occasionally. What could be easier than that?

    Hmm bacon dip sounds pretty yummy to me! Home made dips are so much more tasty than the shop bought ones.Best of all you combine whatever ingredients you have in the pantry and the fridge!...great way to fool the kids into eating their less favorite veggies.)Somehow even brocoli tastes amazing when pulped into a dip!Thanks for the recipes.

    Best

    Tim!
