Quick Chili con Queso Recipe

I love to make this dip for parties, because it is so easy and I usually have all the ingredients on hand. I double the recipe and prepare it in my slow cooker, because it will not scorch. This makes it completely worry-free when entertaining.—Marie Stout, APO, AP

"Use a good-quality black bean salsa, like Mrs. Renfro's, and this will be awesome. I use a 1.5-quart slow cooker to keep the dip warm."
