Velveeta Salsa Dip Recipe for the Slow Cooker


Cheese Dip with Chips
Photo: Diana Rattray
This super easy dip is always welcome. Add chopped cilantro to this dip for extra flavor, and use your favorite salsa.  Other possible additions: chopped chile peppers, hot sauce, tomatoes with green chiles.


  • 16 ounces Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) picante sauce or salsa
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, optional


Place cheese cubes and picante sauce in a slow cooker or crockpot. Cover and cook on HIGH, stirring occasionally, until the cheese cubes are melted and blended with the salsa, about 2 hours. Stir in cilantro when melted.

Serve hot, right from the slow cooker, with tortilla chips or corn chips.

Note: This recipe can be varied by adding chopped chile peppers, Ro-Tel tomatoes instead of the salsa, a few dashes of hot sauce, or other additions.

Makes about 1 quart of dip.
