Cheesy Chicken Dip
A cheesy dip that mixes in beans and chicken, you'll be sure to indulge in your cravings while also packing in some protein while you're at it.
- 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, cut into squares
- 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, drained
- 3 cups shredded colby jack cheese
- 2 large cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, shredded
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
- 1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained.
Layer the bottom of your slow cooker with cream cheese, then place tomatoes, cheese, chicken, sour cream, onions and taco seasoning on top of it. Cook on high for 2 hours until cheese is melted, and stir periodically. Add beans, cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables, like celery and carrots. If dip is too thick, add in some milk until it's at the desired consistency.
Mexican Bean Dip
Beans are essential to nailing a Mexican dip. This recipe calls for two different kinds, as well as a variety of additional tasty ingredients.
- 1 16-ounce can refried beans
- 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 pound ground beef, cooked, crumbled and drained
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 8-ounce block cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup jarred jalapeno slices.
Start by layering your slow cooker with refried beans. Add in black beans, ground beef, sour cream, salsa, cheese and jalapenos. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or until cheese is melted. Stir periodically so all of the ingredients are mixed together. If salsa pools at the top, simply blot with a napkin to sop up the excess liquid.
