Im sorry to be the lone negative force here but this was awful. I was really looking forward to having broccoli in a spicy cheese dip (a family favorite) but this was bland and had no flavor. it was also soupy with big chunks. Maybe salting a peppering the broccoli before adding and adding some jalapoenos and green chilis would help but honestly i threw it away. Thankfully I was having an appitizer party so had a lot of other things to serve. thanks tho. Read More

I stumbled across this recipe when looking for a kid's appetizer -- I make a few changes & call it Cowboy Hash. Brown 1lb. lean ground beef & drain off any excess fat. Stir in some chopped onion & heat thru a couple minutes more. Transfer the mixture to your crockpot & be certain to use the Rotell tomatoes brand. I don't put in the broccoli. Excellent for Super Bowl parties New Year's Eve etc. Read More

I make this recipe without the broccoli and it is also very good. For guest who do not like spicy try the non-spicy pork. For those who want extra spicy use Mexican processed cheese. Read More

Made this for the Superbowl and it was the most popular dip served. I forgot to get frozen chopped broccoli but will use it next time just to see how the flavor changes. Read More

I've made this before and it's always hit. This time however I mixed a pound of sweet italian ground sausage. It's amazing. Read More

I browned the sausage and then threw everything in a slow cooker because I was busy making other things. I actually think this turned out good. I don't think it can be considered a Mexican cheese dip but it was still good. Read More
