  1. Place processed cheese, chili, cream cheese, and picante sauce into a slow cooker, set on Low, and let processed cheese melt, about 30 minutes. Stir until thoroughly combined; serve warm.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I use the large jar of picante sauce just because it's easier and I can't find other store-bought salsas in the big jar. Feel free to use whatever you like.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
