It’s Deborah from Taste and Tell – back with another great slow cooker recipe!!
I am a dip addict. I love them. Whether they are full of veggies, cheese, cold or hot – I can’t get enough. So of course, when I saw this Queso Verde on BHG.com, I knew I had to give it a try.
And even better – it’s made in the slow cooker, which makes it even easier!!
I grew up in New Mexico, so I am always drawn to anything with Southwestern flavors. And this dip fits the bill!! I love the little bit of spicy and the lots of cheesy. My kind of dip!!
The original recipe calls for ground turkey, but I absolutely love ground sausage in queso verde. I used a pound of breakfast sausage (I love it in dips like this), but you could also use sweet Italian sausage, or even a spicy sausage.
I think a great secret for when you are using the slow cooker is to add a fresh element. This dip has canned green chiles, so some chopped fresh poblano pepper really adds some extra dimension.
After browning the sausage and chopping the pepper, the rest is dump and stir! Throw all of your ingredients into the slow cooker and cook away.
The only other change I made was to add another cup of cheese right before serving. This makes it so you get the ooey, gooey cheesiness when you go to eat it. If you are serving this to a crowd, you can leave it in the slow cooker so that it stays warm, or you can serve it in individual bowls.
You can check out the original recipe here on the bhg site. This is a great, crowd pleasing recipe!!
