Slow Cooker Cheesy Fiesta Dip is an easy and yummy dish that is worth making on repeat. This crowd pleaser is filled with corn, beans, and all sorts of cheesy, flavorful goodness. The perfect way to spice up any occasion.
It just doesn't get much better than this. A slow cooker recipe that is cheesy, flavorful, and game day-worthy doesn't come along often. Especially one that takes mere minutes to assemble.
I made this slow cooker taco dip for a Super Bowl party and it was a huge hit. I actually had leftovers of my Baba Ghanoush and Sun-Dried Tomato Baked Brie Cheese. That has never happened before! People couldn’t keep their chips out of this dip.
It is a great recipe for a large crowd. However, you can cut it in half. This would make it the perfect size for an appetizer.

To make this amazing slow cooker nacho dip you will need:
- Shredded cheddar cheese - I always opt for sharp cheddar cheese
- Shredded Mexican blend cheese - I go the lazy way and buy already shredded cheese.
- Cream cheese
- Milk - of choice, I love almond cashew milk
- Corn - canned, drained
- Creamed corn
- Black beans - canned, drained
- Diced tomatoes
- Chili peppers - canned, mild or hot
- White onion - chopped
- Smoked paprika
- Chili powder
- Fresh cilantro - chopped
- Non-stick agent - of choice
🥣How to make it
To start this homemade cheese dip recipe, grease your slow cooker with some sort of non-stick agent. You can use nonstick cooking spray, oil, or even butter - whatever you prefer.
Next, add all the rest of the ingredients to your slow cooker. The only thing you may want to hold back is a little bit of cilantro to use as garnish (optional).
After that just stir, turn your slow cooker to low, cover, and walk away! In 4-6 hours you will have an amazing dip without much work. Turn down to warm serve it right from the slow cooker you made it in!
Hint: For a next level extra little kick, hot chili peppers are a great add-in.
This is one of those easy recipes that is perfect just as is! All you really need is a bowl of tortilla chips to scoop out the cheesy goodness. Celery and carrots sticks are great for dipping too.
To dress up a bit, top your dip with some freshly chopped green chiles, green onions, and/or sour cream.
A few of my favorite foods to serve alongside this dish include make-your-own chicken tacos, shredded beef chili, and chunky salsa. Homemade refried beans and a big bowl of taco meat also make great additions.
Leftovers of this cheesy dip will still be great the next day! Just store in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave.
😉Hints & hacks
- Looking to make this dish even heartier? Add in some browned ground beef, spicy sausage, or cooked shredded chicken breasts.
- This crockpot chili cheese dip is also great served as a baked potato or as a nacho platter topping.
- Monterey Jack cheese is a great substitution if you can’t find a Mexican blend.
- Corn chips make for great dipping as do pretzel flats and toasted tortillas
