"Half the recipe was the perfect fit for my mini-crockpot! Made an excellent hot dip to serve next to a cold layered mexican dip. Like reviewer Pattysue22, I too, added shreaded pepper jack cheese to make it a bit more spy. In my minicrock it was warm and ready to eat within an hour. Quick, easy and very little prep. Perfect for the begining of a party."

"I needed something to take that I could throw in a crockpot at lunch and be ready to go when I got home from work. I followed the recipe exactly and it was good, but decided to add an 8 oz. package of shredded mexican cheese after sampling. This is a definite keeper!! I was asked several times for the recipe. Thanks for sharing!!!!"

"I made this recipe exactly as written, but the end result was that it was the consistency of a soup and not a dip. I ended up adding two 8-ounce packages of cream cheese instead of two 3-ounce packages. This definitely helped, so much so, that I'm wondering if the 3-ounce packages are a missprint. The 8-ounces did the trick, and my dip looked a lot more like the consistency of the picture. Also, because I'm a cheese-lover, I threw in a 2-cup package of Mexican-blend shredded cheese. With these changes, I would definitely make this again, but probably only half the recipe unless I was feeding a huge crowd."
