During the hectic holiday season, my slow cooker works overtime. I fill it with a savory bacon dip and watch everyone line up for a helping. Keep the recipe in mind for tailgating, too. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

"Made for Christmas Eve and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it. Served with pita crackers and garlic bagel chips. This will now be my go to dip. Had to use canned chopped/diced tomato and perfection. Try it... you wont be disappointed!"
