Game days are my favorite days… for the game and of course, the FOOD! Having a fun homegating party doesn’t have to be stressful, especially when you have a few tricks up your sleeve. No one wants to spend hours in the kitchen prepping for a party, or waste precious visiting time cooking while your friends and family are over. That’s where you need some low-prep, easy recipes, and a little help from your slow cooker. Today I’ve partnered with Crock-Pot® Brand to bring you this incredibly easy dip recipe!
That right there is my new best friend! All the great Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker quality you’ve come to expect from their products, plus I LOVE the NFL logo. I can serve food right out of this slow cooker during a party… which means less dishes to wash… and it looks beautiful! I also love that the lid clamps down, especially if you’re going to be homegating at someone else’s house… no more worrying about the lid moving and your delicious dip spilling all over the car!
If any of you reading this are football fans… you might be questioning my NFL team choice for my Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker. The Bengals certainly aren’t doing well this year (well, most years they don’t, if I’m being honest), but I’m a born and raised Cincinnatian, and we love our hometown teams. So regardless of their win/loss record, those are my boys 🙂 So let’s talk about this corn dip. Have you ever tried it? It’s a fairly popular dip, but my version has a few little tweaks made to my family’s tastes, that I think you’ll really love. Plus, you literally just dump it all in the slow cooker and it cooks itself! As a busy Mom, and someone who has no patience for cooking elaborate meals for party, that’s a lifesaver!
If you’re worried about the heat level, I think it’s somewhere between a mild and medium level as is. However there are a few ways to adjust that level to your tastes.
- Make sure you’re using the mild jarred jalapeños
- Use less jalapeños
- Use mild diced green chiles
- Use more jarred jalapeños
- Use hot jarred jalapeños
- Use fresh jalapeños
I can’t even tell you how addicting this dip is. All I can say is that I planned to have a little bit after these photos were taken, and ended up pretty much eating the whole bowl… it’s THAT good. And I wasn’t even sorry 😉 Usually we serve this dip with some tortilla chips (my personal favorite is the “scoop” variety), but you can use whatever dipper you think would be best.
The next game day, invite some friends and family over and don’t stress… with this recipe and your Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker, your homegating party will be a huge success!!
