There are those who go to Super Bowl parties for the game, and those who are there for the food (that’s me!). Inspired by classic taco dip, this is the warm and cheesy bean dip that will win over both sides of the party.

Why Your Dip Deserves This Upgrade

This riff takes the three best layers of any taco dip — the beans, cheese, and salsa — and brings them together in one warm appetizer, with the help of the slow cooker. It’s hearty, a little indulgent, and, depending on the salsa you choose, spicy.

How to Make It

Set your slow cooker to warm and add about 2 cups of bean dip (homemade or store-bought) to the bowl. Stir in about 1/2 cup of salsa and about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Serve straight from the slow cooker. Double (or triple) as necessary.

With the help of just a few staple ingredients you probably have on hand already, you can turn a batch of homemade or store-bought dip into an impressive appetizer loaded with more texture and big flavor. This series gives you the inspiration to turn a basic bean, cheese, or yogurt dip into the MVP of the Super Bowl spread.
