We have so many bean dip recipes that we love (including 7 Layer Dip, Cream Cheese Bean Dip, and Black Bean Dip), but what I love about this recipe the most is that the crock pot does ALL the work!

Slow Cooker Version of a Classic

We are BIG fans of bean dip over here. Really, we are big fans of anything that involves cheese, beans, and chips (who isn’t, right?!)

We make this cheesy bean dip on the regular and we love it. This slow cooker version is just as delicious and such a time saver!

Anytime I make this slow cooker bean dip, I am constantly getting compliments and recipe requests. It’s a hit every time I make it! This is such a great recipe to bring to holiday parties, family dinners, etc.! Make it a couple hours ahead of time and you’ve got the yummiest appetizer. I can almost taste it just by writing about it. Those creamy refried beans mixed with the melty cheese and salsa. It’s SO good you guys! Promise me you will make it this season.

how to make it

This tasty dip only requires a small handful of ingredients:

  • sour cream
  • refried beans (If you’re feeling adventurous, you can make your own refried beans.)
  • cream cheese
  • taco seasoning (we love using our homemade taco seasoning)
  • Mexican cheese
  • salsa

MIX & SLOW COOK. In a medium bowl, mix together the refried beans, sour cream, and cream cheese. Once everything is combined, add in the taco seasoning and up to ¼ cup of the salsa. Pour the mixture into the slow cooker and top with the cheese. Cook on LOW for 2 hours.

SERVE. This bean dip is best served hot out of the crock pot. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy every bite!

If you have any leftovers, scoop it out into airtight containers and keep it refrigerated for 2-3 days. Reheat when necessary in the microwave! Leftovers can also be mixed in with other dishes such as burritos, tostadas, tacos and more.

Switch it up

Though we love this simple version you can easily change up the ingredients to you’re liking:

  • Use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream
  • Try another favorite flavor cheese such as cheddar or Monterrey Jack
  • Add sliced jalapeños
  • Make it ranch bean dip by replacing taco mix with ranch dressing mix
  • Add sliced olives

You can even change up what to dip with. The infamous tortilla chip is most popular, but you can also use:

  • Fritos- they even make larger scoop shaped ones
  • Crackers like Ritz or Triscuits
  • Pretzels

Regardless of what you add to it or dip in it, I can guarantee this one will be a crowd favorite!

    Delicious and do easy! I love this Crock-Pot version of an old classic! Making it in the Crock-Pot is perfect because I can keep it warm throughout the entirety of the party…or as long as it lasts, anyway!

    I’m always down for a good crock pot recipe! I like that I can just keep it warm in the crock pot when serving at a party.
