For the full list of ingredients and recipe, scroll to the bottom of the post for the recipe card.

Variations Ideas

  • Change Meat – Substitute ground turkey for the ground beef. No one will notice. The turkey blends with the flavor of everything else.
  • Omit the meat – You will still have a delicious taco dip that is cheesy and amazing.
  • Rotel – Add a can of rotel to the ingredients. This will make it a little spicy.
  • Chili – Use a can of bean free chili instead of the ground beef.
  • Beans – Refried beans make a great substitution for the beef. You can also add it to the ground beef and have both.
  • Shredded Cheese – Add a handful of your favorite shredded cheese to the top. Cover and cook for a minute or two. Just long enough to melt the cheese.
  • Guacamole – Top each serving with sour cream and guacamole. You can also add a few diced tomatoes to each serving. If you want to spice things up, add jalapeno peppers on top of the dip!

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – Put all of the ingredients in a crock pot. I would use between a 2.5-4 quart size crock pot.
  • Step 3 – Cover and cook on low for 1 to 2 hours. Make sure to stir the dip frequently until the dip is fully melted and all of the ingredients are well combined.

Don’t forget to turn the crock pot to the warm setting once the dip is ready. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Texture – After the dip sits awhile, it can start to thicken. I like to add a little milk right before serving. Try adding ½ cup of milk if you would like a thinner consistency. You might want to gradually add the milk in until you get the consistency that you prefer.
  •  Crock Pot – We used a 3 quart crock pot but the recipe will work in a 2.5 to 4 quart slow cooker.
  • Game Day Dip – Serving this for a crowd or party? Double the recipe and use a  regular size crock pot.  
  • Crockpot liners– Worth every penny! Clean up is so easy with these.

    You can use cheddar cheese as a substitution for Velveeta in this recipe.

  2. Shirley A Reid says:

    I want to make this dip so bad but will not eat Velveeta cheese for any reason. What can I use for a substitute?
