Fabulous Football Dips!

Last Christmas, my soon-to-be in-laws gifted me something wonderful....


"Triple Slow Cooker" - how could I NOT love that?! Three times the slow cooking fun, all in one little package.

Yesterday, I realized I really hadn't taken this baby out for a whirl since I got it. Not cool.

I also realized that it was Sunday, which meant football, which meant football-y watching foods were in order.

Ya' know..there's nothing like a trio of hot dips to break in a slow cooker and celebrate the start of football season!


Buffalo Chicken.

Jalapeno Popper.

Crazy Queso.

Any one of these dips would be a great addition to Game Day, and if you happen to have incredible in-laws that gift you awesome triple slow cookers, I would highly encourage you to make all three!

Buffalo Chicken Dip
I think the secret to great buffalo dip is to use Blue Cheese instead of Ranch. The buffalo sauce is strong enough that the dip doesn't taste overly 'blue cheesy', so even if you've been a die-hard Ranch fan your whole buffalo wing life, I'd say give it a try!

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped chicken (go ahead and use a rotisserie chicken!)
  • 1 8 ounce block cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese (please grate your own!)
  • 1/2 cup Blue Cheese dressing
  • 1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker (or on the stove in a saucepan) and heat on low, stirring occasionally until all ingredients are hot and melty! Serve with chips and celery sticks. 

Jalapeno Popper Dip
The great thing about this dip is that you can really adjust your heat level using more canned jalapenos, freshly chopped jalapeno peppers, or any other kind of pepper that floats your boat!
  • 1 8 ounce block cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (colby jack or Mexican blend)
  • 1 4 ounce can chopped green chilis
  • 1 4 ounce can chopped jalapenos
Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker (or on the stove in a saucepan) and heat on low, stirring occasionally until all ingredients are hot and melty! Serve with a sturdy chip (fritos work well).

Crazy Queso Dip
I'll admit, I was skeptical of this recipe...cream of mushroom soup and Rotel? But for some reason, all the flavors work together. The addition of some crumbled sausage would make this dip even better!
  • 1 small block Velveeta cheese
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker (or on the stove in a saucepan) and heat on low, stirring occasionally until all ingredients are hot and melty! Serve with tortilla chips, pita bread or corn chips.
