Who’s ready for the big game coming? You know that ONE football game EVERYBODY looks forward to each year? Yeah, that one! It’s THE BEST game of the year and it has THE BEST food to go along with it.
If you’re like me and be honest, the FOOD is one of the best parts of the day. Well, the food and the commercials. But I’d say the food comes first in my book!
I am always in charge of the food and I make everyone’s favorites – Buffalo Chicken Dip and Mississippi Roast Sandwiches always top the list of must-make items.
And if you have savory food, you have to have sweets! Oreo Dessert, Peanut Butter Cup Brownies, and Chocolate Chip Candy Bar grace our buffet table every year.
I always throw in a wildcard dish for good measure.
Anytime I can use my crock pot to make a perfect appetizer, I’m down to make that happen!

Ingredients To Make Homemade Chili Cheese Dip
- chili with meat and beans
- processed cheese (like Velveeta)
How To Make Chili Cheese Dip
Are you ready for it? It’s so easy you could have your husband who never cooks make it. Or your grandma. Or your 5-year old. Anyone!
1. Add to slow cooker
Add 1 can of your favorite chili to a slow cooker. I like chili that has meat and beans for this recipe.
2. Add in the cheese
Add 1/2 block of processed cheese to the slow cooker – make sure to cut it into cubes first.
3. Turn to low
Turn slow cooker on to low. Walk away.
That’s it! Just let it all melt together while you prepare your other big game food and then come back and stir it all together when you’re ready to serve it. Have lots of tortilla chips on hand to dip in!
Alternatively, you could add the chili and cheese to a microwave safe bowl and melt it all together (stopping and stirring often). Then add it to your small slow cooker to keep warm. I do this if I can’t wait and need it quick. Which is often! haha!
See, I told you this was the easiest and yummiest dip around! It’s a favorite of everyone!
If you wanted to change things up a bit, you can! This is what makes this dip recipe so great!
Add a bit of heat – If you’re a fan of spice, add in some green chiles or spice. You can also add in salsa for a kick as well.
Change up the cheese – The way that cheese melts, you can add in other cheeses as well. I like to sprinkle in some shredded cheese like cheddar cheese for some extra flavor.
Don’t forget the toppings – You can easily add on toppings as well. Chives and cilantro are great and green onions are also. I also like cutting up avocadoes and having them on top.
