Crock Pot Meaty Cheese Dip


So I was asked to make dip for a party at my sister's house, and of course I was excited for the opportunity to cook something new.  After all, I'd never made a dip in the crock pot before.  I found a ton of variations in several recipes, but decided to go with this one.  My first thought about using Velveeta was "Heck no!  I want real cheese" but after reading more and seeing that Velveeta seemed to be the standard for melted cheese dips, I decided to try it out.  

I picked up some diced tomatoes with chiles & a box of Velveeta.


I cut the Velveeta into small cubes so it would melt easier in the crock pot.


I put the cubed cheese into the bottom of the crock pot.


I browned the ground turkey on the stove.  I thought about adding some chili powder or taco seasoning but decided against it.  I would have hated for this to turn out bad for a party.


After the turkey was cooked, I poured it on top of the cheese in the crock pot.


I topped it off with the canned tomatoes and set it up to cook on high.


Within an hour, I had a fantastic smelling dip, ready to pack up and bring to the party.


Oh my awesome!  I couldn't help but steal a few scoops because it smelled and looked so good and let me tell you, I am sold on Velveeta in dips.  This was my first time using tomatoes with chiles and it was not overly spicy at all.  The crock pot worked perfectly because I just kept it set on warm to keep the dip melted as opposed to microwaving it repeatedly throughout the night  In the end I was glad I went with Velveeta because coincidentally  someone else brought a cheese dip to the party and had used real cheddar.  It was nice to have some variation and at the end of the night, my cheese dip had not only gotten tons of complements, but it had disappeared as well.
