This Slow Cooker Texas Trash Beef and Bean Dip is extremely creamy and hearty, makes for the best game-day dip!
This Slow Cooker Texas Trash Beef and Bean Dip is a must-try. I really don’t know why it is called Texas Trash, but my guess is that it is because it is filled with all the heavenly foods that we shouldn’t eat every day! Most recipes for Texas Trash dip don’t have beef. I think beef is a natural addition and makes this dip more into a meal.
I’ve made so many bean dips over the years, this one is very different. The cream cheese adds so much flavor and creaminess, and the flavor of the cream cheese helps the canned beans taste homemade.
I mix everything in my slow cooker, then wipe down the edges before cooking.
After 2 hours on high the dip looks like this (with some adding toppings).
