This hearty dip has a short list of very common ingredients, and all of the preparation can be done a day or so ahead if necessary; the dip can then be reheated in the slow cooker shortly before it’s time to serve it. If you prefer an extra spicy cheese dip, you may add some canned jalapeno peppers that have been blended in the food processor or blender (be careful – just add gradually). You may also add a can of Rotel tomatoes and peppers (reduce the amount of salsa to 1 cup).
Of course this dip isn’t just for the Superbowl; it's a great dip to add to an appetizer buffet, or it's something that goes together very fast when someone wants a substantial snack.
