Slow Cooker Mexican Dip Recipe

Slow Cooker Mexican Dip Recipe

My husband, Jamie, and I love to entertain and this hearty, 7-ingredient dip is always a hit…as well as a request. It couldn’t be much easier to put together, and using our slow cooker leaves us free to share some quality time with our guests. After all, isn't that the purpose of a holiday party? —Heather Courtney, Ames, Iowa
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 1-1/2 hours YIELD:64 servings

  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce

"Very odd combination of the Italian Sausage and Enchilada sauce, we didn't care for it at all. It's also a very unattractive dish, not something you'd want to serve at a party."

"This is very easy, and super yummy. A big hit at the potluck. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that I wish it used something other than Velveeta, which is such crap. I sort of cringe at the idea of using Velveeta in anything. Next time I think I'll try it with cream cheese, or maybe cream cheese mixed with real cheddar."

"Everyone loved it, asking for the recipe. It makes a large quantity though. I used about half for the party and have frozen the rest for next time. Definitely will be using this often"
