Taco Joe Dip

My daughter was the first to try this recipe. She thought it was so good she passed it on to me. My husband and I think it’s terrific. Because it’s made in a slow cooker, it’s perfect for parties or busy days. —Lang Secrest, Sierra Vista, Arizona

    I used mexi corn to help spice it up. I also added cilantro. I know, I know....a lot of people do NOT like cilantro. I just add a bit. I also added some left over red pepper.

    I used low sodium versions of the beans and taco seasoning. Swapped out the stewed tomatoes for diced, and the green chiles for jalapenos. It was great with chips, and also great with halved mini bell peppers.

    We really enjoyed this dip! I made it according to the recipe for a potluck. The flavor was fantastic, but I didn't think that it looked like a dip, so I added some Velveeta and a can of refried beans to thicken it. I will definitely make this again!!

    Any easy to put together dip that everyone will enjoy? What's not to like?? Since I dislike onions, I just cut those out of the recipe and added in some onion powder for flavor instead - still worked great as an appetizer even without them!

    Good and easy! I replaced the tomato sauce with rotel, and added about a cup of of pulled pork since I had that on hand. My whole family enjoyed this!

    Excellent! dip Easy to put together and to soup was really good, too. I liked adding sour cream and some Mexican shredded cheese on top of the soup to cut down the spiciness a little.

    Good alternative to typical hot dips. As stated by previous reviewer, I also used a can of Rotel in place of the stewed tomatoes for a little extra zip.

    Made this as written except used one can of diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of the stewed tomatoes and can of green chilies. It had just the right amount of heat for us and was a great dip for New Year's Eve.

    This was very good. It did not take long for this to disappear.
