The Ultimate Tailgating Party: Slow Cooker Seven Layer Dip

Seven layer dip is a game day favorite! It has all of the best elements of a taco loaded onto a chip. I’ve made a few changes to the typical seven layer dip by serving it warm! The layers of refried beans, spicy sausage, green chilis, salsa and cheese are cooked in the crock pot. When the cheese is melty, top with sour cream, tomatoes and green onions. You’ll have a tailgating recipe hit on your hands!

Tailgating Recipe - Slow Cooker Seven Layer Dip. Recipe on Southern Mom Cooks #UltimateTailgatingParty

I’m Meghan and I blog over at The Tasty Fork. Once Labor Day comes around, Saturday & Sunday events are planned all around what football games we’re going to watch. Football is a big deal in our house! Since we have a pretty big TV, our friends love coming to our place to watch football. I’m totally fine with having people over but it does give me some pressure to make awesome game day food to impress the couch sitting fan.

#UltimateTailgatingParty on Southern Mom Cooks. Slow Cooker Seven Layer Dip

Slow Cooker Seven Layer Dip is amazingly delicious!! It has all of the same elements of a cold seven layer dip but I like it served warm A LOT better! It’s like eating a taco on a chip when it’s warm! And I love tacos, so this is a winning recipe for me. It’s super easy to assemble in your crock pot. Slow Cooker 7 Layer Dip will take about 10 minutes to assemble and cook on the highest setting for 45-60 minutes. I love serving it from the crock pot because I can change the cook setting to warm and the dip will stay hot until it’s all gone. Can a dip cooked in the oven do that??!!

  4. Oh, my word! This looks so delicious! I can’t wait to try it at our next get-together. Or I may just make it for our family…don’t know if I can wait too long! Thank you so much for sharing. I wonder if a person could substitute ground beef for the sausage??? My husband can’t eat anything too spicy, due to health issues. Just thought I’d ask. :) Thanks again, and God’s blessings to you, Cheryl
