A few simple ingredients and less than 2 hours in the slow cooker produce this ultra-creamy dip!

This bean dip is such an easy appetizer! I wanted a simple bean dip, no salsa or jalapenos this time. I added a few spices to make the canned beans taste homemade.

I was feeling ambitious the day I made this and made corn tortilla chips. This Creamy Bean and Cheese Dip with the homemade corn chips is HEAVEN! Homemade chips aren’t hard to make, see how easy they are to make with this Fine Cooking chips recipe.

    How do you think Velveeta would work in this? I know you have a elveeta one but this sounds better to me.

  2. Melissa says:

    Could you use chili powder instead of cayenne pepper? Would that help it be less hot?

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      Yes, or you can leave it out completely.

  3. Rita says:
