Expert Tips

  • Small sized slow cookers are so handy for keeping warm dips at the perfect temperature.
  • If you don’t have a slow cooker, you could bake this dip in your oven. Place in a small casserole and bake uncovered at 375°F (190°C) for about 20 minutes or until mixture is warm and cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • This dip would be a great addition to a traditional taco bar. For those who don’t eat meat, they could use this dip instead of the taco beef and then add toppings like fresh lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sour cream.
