I've had this recipe since I was in college many, many years ago! It is always the first to go at get-togethers and makes a 5 qt. crock pot full. You can spice it up or down, depending on how "hot" you like it. If there's any left the next day, it's great over scrambled eggs or baked potatoes.

This cheese dip is literally loaded with all kinds of texture and flavor. It's a super easy crock pot recipe and if you use the liner like recommended. The dip is full of ground meat and yummy bacon. The onions are cooked with the meat mixture so they are nice and soft. This dip makes a lot, so it would be perfect for a crowd.

How To Make loaded nacho dip

  • 1
    Brown ground beef, chopped bacon, onion and garlic together until done. Drain well. Sprinkle meat mixture with taco seasoning and stir. Put a liner in a 5 quart crock pot. I always use a crock pot liner as I hate cleaning cooked-on cheese out of my crock pot. If you don't use a liner, spray the crock pot well with non-stick spray before adding beef mixture. Dump beef mixture into crock pot. Set temperature at low.

    Add in the quart of chunky salsa and stir. I generally use mild or moderate but if you like it fiery, use hot. Stir in the black and green olives, diced green chilies, milk and cubed Velveeta. Let cook on low for at least an hour, stirring occasionally. Turn crock pot down to keep warm setting and serve.
