  • Summary

    Four words: Slow Cooker Queso Dip. And there’s nothing thin or saucy about it! We’re talking about a queso dip. A big ol’ thick and hearty dip. A stick-to-the-chips kinda dip. An eat-it-with-a-spoon kinda dip. Ready for the rundown? (Spoiler Alert: It’s only four ingredients!)   It all starts with fresh chorizo, but if you’re not a fan of the slightly spicy sausage, you can easily substitute the same quantity of ground beef. Simply sauté it until it’s cooked through and then transfer it to your trusty slow cooker along with three other ingredients. That right there is the real deal. As in, real cheese. No processed stuff in sight! The chorizo gets cosy alongside cubed sharp cheddar, cream cheese and homemade or store-bought salsa. A quick stir and a few hours later, and the result is a thick and cheesy queso dip perfect for dipping and dunking or spooning atop a platter of chips for the ultimate nachos. Toss on a few (optional!) sliced jalapeños for added zing, and your taste buds will be singing your praises. Looking for more ways to satisfy your snack cravings?
