This chip dip recipe never lets us down. It’s always a crowd pleaser– it has the perfect amount of spicy heat in each bite. You can dip just about anything into it. This Chili Cheese Salsa Dip is ridiculously easy to make and tastes great simmering in the crock pot. Perfect for tailgating!
Since this is an appetizer, you will need a smaller size slow cooker, as opposed to a full size crock pot. I really love this quart size slow cooker because you can make two appetizers at once. Especially for events like the Super Bowl, appetizer variety is what everyone looks forward to!
We use 3 cans of chili, including 1 can that is “hot” and two cans that are “medium” in heat. You’ll need 1/2 of an onion, diced, a small can of salsa. The 7 oz can seen above is a spicy, chunky red Mexican salsa with tomatoes, chiles, onions, garlic and cilantro. It adds a lot of unique flavor, especially with the Mexican queso fresco.
