Go to any tailgate party and there is always some sort of dip. Because of convenience and transportability, nacho dips are rarely seen in the parking lots. With the help of a 12 volt crock pot you can have a cheesy and delicious nacho dip that can feed any tailgate party crowd.
What you’ll need:
1 – 2 lb. box of Velveeta Cheese Spread
3 – 10.75 oz. cans of nacho cheese soup
1 – 16 oz. jar of salsa
1 – 7 oz. can of diced green chiles
2 – 7 oz. cans of sliced black olives
½ lb. ground beef.
Brown ground beef in a skillet and drain off excess fat. In a large crock pot, combine Velveeta, soup, salsa, chiles, olives and cooked ground beef together. Turn the crock pot on high and stir the mixture frequently to ensure all ingredients melt together. To speed up the process, cut the Velveeta log into cubes so they can melt faster. Once the mixture is completely melted, let cook for an hour or until piping hot. Serve with corn or tortilla strips.
Tailgating Tip: If you are pressed for time, you can prepare this cheesy nacho dip in your home crock pot and transfer it to your traveling 12 volt slow cooker before you leave for the tailgate party. Just make sure that your 12 volt crock pot is secured and will not tip over if you stop suddenly or make a sharp turn. No one wants nacho cheese dip all over their car before getting to the parking lot.
If you do not have a 12 volt slow cooker, you can buy a 1 1/2 Qt. 12-Volt Slow Cooker at Camping World. Do not try to bring your home crock pot to the tailgate party expecting to use it with a power inverter. A home crock pot pulls to much power energy to use with a power inverter and will not work.
