This simple slow cooker bean dip is perfect for game day snacking. Just a few ingredients and hours later you've got a deliciously easy dish!
I love our slow cooker.
Seriously. Like love love. I don't know what I would do without it some days. Ever since Lily was born, my energy to cook is a rollercoaster ride I'd be happy to hop off of any day now. Some days we make it to the kitchen together, some days dad's in charge and I'm just happy to eat a warmish meal.
But our slow cooker has helped me out a ton in that department. I've made a few delicious dishes with it recently, including this simple slow cooker bean dip.
This slow cooker bean dip recipe is perfect for game day or any get-together where snacking is involved. I won't lie though – add some chips and this is totally a main meal for me.
Not only is this slow cooker bean dip inexpensive, but it's an easy crowd pleaser. Perfect for entertaining when you're short on time or need to give your attention to another dish (or person in my case.)

And can we talk about this plate and bowl for a moment?! You don't see the peppers that are on these, but they are SO fun! Perfect for all kinds of Mexican dishes. They'd pair so well with these napkins, plates and table cover for a fun Cinco de Mayo celebration!
A few notes about this recipe:
- You can easily adjust the size if you're having a bigger or smaller crowd
- It tastes great leftover – it just may need a little bit of liquid to thin it out
- Don't puree as long with the immersion blender if you like a chunkier dip
