While we make our RoTel dips in the microwave, you could certainly do it in a crockpot. It will just take a bit for the cheese to melt in a slow cooker, so be sure to allow for that. Or, for the cheater’s way: make the dip and transfer it to the slow cooker to keep it warm.
If you read this whole thing, you are going to find a secret. Adding a 1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese to the mixture will take the entire dip up a notch. No one will be able to figure it out, but they will love it!
