This dip was amazing! I made this with Old Elpaso's Hot and Spicy Taco seasoning mix. I think it would have been a little bland had I not used the hot and spicy seasoning. I was a little unsure of this dip when it was done as the cheese was just sitting in there and not incorporated, until I stirred it all together and it came together perfectly!


I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes, and it worked very well! I drained them first and added only a tiny bit of the juice. I used ground turkey instead of beef, and no one could tell the difference. For a little kick, once the cheese had melted all the way, I added some hotsauce to the pot. My cheese took a little longer than an hour to melt, so I would recommend starting ahead of time. Don't let it go too long in the pot! We had this for new years, and after the toasts at midnight, the dip had gone brown and had a bit of a burned taste (even on the low setting).


This was the easiest and most delicious dip, I've ever made. I would recommend this dip to anyone. It needed nothing extra; I served it with Frito Corn Chips. The only note to make is that it takes much longer than an hour in a crock pot on low. I had to turn the tempertature to high, so that it would be ready within an hour. Defintely a Keeper.
