Slow Cooker Nacho Dip (With VIDEO)

Slow Cooker Nacho Dip recipe is luxuriously creamy and cheesy, loaded with perfectly browned ground beef, diced chiles and hot salsa.

Slow Cooker Nacho Dip will become your go to appetizer! You can easily feed a party, which is very handy during the busy holiday season. Once you try this homemade Slow Cooker Nacho Dip you will never go back to store bought. The dip is made with a handful of ingredients only.

All you have to do is add them to the slow cooker and let it to it's magic. Now, this is how I like to cook, I really appreciate when the slow cooker does all the hard lifting. This cheesy dip is packed with taco seasoned browned beef, chunky salsa, sweet onion and diced green chiles for extra flavor. Serve it over corn chips, with fresh Pico de Gallo and sour cream!

Hey guys, it's Catalina from Sweet and Savory Meals here. I am happy to be a contributor on TSRI and add recipes to Donna and Chad's already great collection. A few weeks ago I introduced you to this amazing Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup, seriously guys, its a must try with 9M views on Facebook itself! I am back with another slow cooker recipe for you, that you will just love for how easy and tasty it is!


  • I have made this recipe 3 times, and I can tell you that using Velveeta cheese will produce the creamiest and most authentic dip. 
  • If your slow cooker has a "Sauté" function, you can brown the beef directly into it. Make sure to drain excess fat. Also note, that browning the beef on the stove, in a cast iron skillet will produce the best results.
  • The green chiles are optional, if you want to add more heat to the dip, add more diced green chiles.
  • The dip can be easily made vegetarian by skipping the beef, you can replace it with canned black or navy beans. Make sure to wash and drain the beans first.
  • Topping suggestions: chopped jalapeños, Pico de Gallo, sour cream, sliced avocado, grated cheddar cheese.


  • Slow Cooker - the slow cooker is almost my most used kitchen gadget, especially during fall/winter! It's just so convenient, and lets face it, it makes comfort food taste even better!
  • Velveeta cheese - its a soft cheese that melts really well and is usually used in dips.

Applebee's Spicy Queso Blanco Dip can now be enjoyed at home.  Our copycat recipe couldn't taste better.  This creamy cheesy dip with a little kick is loaded with 2 cheeses, fresh herbs and just enough heat to make your tongue tingle.

This perfectly scoopable Lazy Day Salsa is a classic tomato salsa that is whipped up in a flash (no chopping required). It is speckled with bits of onion, garlic, and cilantro for extra freshness. This salsa is so easy you can make it in 10 minutes (it actually takes me about 5) . The best part is, you can add it to left over chicken, burgers, casseroles and viola you have the perfect dinner.

Best Ever Chipotle's Copycat Guacamole features bits of jalapeno, red onion and fresh herbs that speckle the creamy chunks of avocado.  Citrus juices and salt complete this simple and fresh guacamole.  Trust me this is the last guacamole you will ever need to to sample.

Slow Cooker Nacho Dip
SERVES 8  |  PREP TIME 10 Min  |  COOK TIME 1 Hour 20 Min

1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles, or more
1 (15.5 ounce) jar chunky mild salsa, (or hot)
1 (32 ounce) brick Velveeta cheese, sliced into 4 smaller logs

Add ground beef to hot, 9 or 10 inch cast iron skillet, over high heat. Don't break down the beef right away, let it cook for 3-4 minutes first, this way it caramelizes first. Start breaking it down after that, add 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning to it, or just salt and pepper and cook for 5-6 more minutes stirring often, or until the beef is fully cooked and nicely browned. Drain excess fat.

Transfer cooked and drained beef to the slow cooker, add diced onion, diced green chiles, salsa and Velveeta cheese.

Cook on high for 1 hour or on Low for 1 1/2-2 hours. Stir the mixture every 30 minutes.

The dip is done when the cheese is fully melted and combined with the other ingredients when stirred. Place slow cooker on warm to keep the dip creamy and melty and serve with corn chips.

Garnish dip with sour cream and homemade or store bough Pico de Gallo, chopped fresh parsley and green onions.
