Tips & Tricks

Cowboy crack dip is as simple as dump and cook. Still, there are some things to keep in mind.

So follow these tips and tricks:

  • Don’t curdle the cream cheese. Turn the slow cooker off or switch it to warm once the dip is cooked.
  • Use canned corn. Instead of frozen corn, you can use canned corn too. Just be sure to drain it before adding it to the slow cooker.
  • Shred fresh cheese. Pre-shredded cheese contains an anti-caking ingredient, making it more difficult to melt. So I always suggest shredding the cheese yourself. Plus, it’s cheaper and super easy to prepare!
  • Add a spicy kick. Want a little bit of heat in your dip? Add some jalapeno slices for a nice kick!
  • Make it super creamy. Want an even creamier dip? Throw a cup of sour cream into the mix.
  • Serve with crunchy dippers. Cowboy crack dip is not limited to just tortilla chips. Pita chips, corn chips, breadsticks, and crackers are all great options. For a healthy twist, serve with crunchy veggie sticks.
  • Add bacon. Everything is better with bacon! So go on, add some crisp and savory bacon crumbles on top of your dip.
  • Try another cheese. Apart from cheddar, you can also use other types of cheeses for this recipe. Pepper jack, gouda, and blue cheese all make fantastic alternatives.
