Set it and forget it – No one likes to hang around the stove or the fryer to get the perfect party snack (especially when there are lots of people around), and this dump-and-go recipe has minimal babysitting required. 

Party Favorite – It is stressful trying to figure out what type of appetizer or dip for parties to serve. Everyone loves cheese, and when you cook it in a slow cooker, it stays warm and melty for the entire event. 

Simple Ingredients

  • ground chorizo or hot sausage – This recipe requires the spicy sausage to be cooked and drained of excess grease. Grocery stores are kind of crazy again, and I couldn’t find chorizo, so I used hot sausage, made by Bob Evans, which comes in the roll.
  • diced tomatoes with chilies
  • package cream cheese, cubed
  • Velveeta Queso Blanco cheese, cubed
  • Serve with homemade tortilla chips or corn chips.

Chorizo Dip Recipe Tips

Prefer a meat-free party appetizer? Rinse off canned black beans and add to dip over sausage (or in addition to!). It is important to rinse the beans to prevent the cheese from turning an unsavory brown.

You can see a full (but varying) version of this in our Crock Pot Velveeta Cheese Dip recipe that includes beans.

This recipe has no additional seasonings in the crock pot, but seasoning the meat goes a long way in ultimate flavor. Some suggestions are to season with salt, black pepper, and minced garlic while cooking sausage. 

Onion is totally optional, but dice and saute sweet onion, white onion, or yellow onion until slightly translucent and then dump into slow cooker.
