Slow Cooker Super Bowl Spicy Velveeta Dip

"This is a wonderful queso style dip you can customize for desired spiciness--perfect for parties (I serve at superbowl parties). To make it extra special I serve in a hollowed out sourdough bread bowl. Preparing it in the slow cooker ensures it stays hot until needed, and you can actually keep any extra inside it to refill once you run out!"

Ready In:
1hr 20mins


  • 1 lb Velveeta pepper jack cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (regular Velveeta may be used to tone down the spiciness)
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can ro*tel tomatoes and green chilies (mild or spicy)
  • 14 lb browned chorizo sausage
  • 1 cup diced broccoli, heated through but still crisp and green
  • 14 - 12 cup salsa, of desired heat
  • 1 -2 tablespoon hot sauce (optional)
  • 1 dash garlic powder
  • 1 sourdough loaf, hollowed out


  • Add choice of Velveeta to your slow cooker, place on low heat. Once it starts to melt, add the minimum of remaining ingredients. Allow at least 30 minutes for the flavors to mingle together before adding extras to suit your own tastes.
  • Prepare bread bowl shortly before serving--hollow out all but 1/2" of the interior bread (save the interior, cut the bread into cubes and serve WITH the dip). Fill bread bowl with dip, serve immediately with bread cubes, cut veggies, tortilla chips, pretzels, whatever you wish.
  • Note: My mother prepares this with spinach rather than broccoli, and my brother doesn't use either. It's all about your preferences.
  • Optional: You can substitute 1 (16 oz) can chili without beans *or* 1/4 lb browned ground beef to replace the chorizo.

  1. This dip is really colorful and delicious. I used regular velveeta and hot Jimmy Dean sausage vs. chorizo because I find chorizo a bit too greasy. Loved the idea of the broccoli - makes you think it is low cal. Made this dish for the Tailgating tag, September, 2011.
  2. My husband loved this more than the traditional version using chili. I'll definitely make this again, but next time I'll add a lot more chorizo to make it more meaty (we love it). I didn't include the broccoli as my hubby isn't a fan. Definitely a keeper!
  3. I made this this weekend as part of a Halloween party for my son's baseball team, it was a total hit! I have made it before with just the meat and tomatoes, no broccoli, but used the broccoli and it disappeared even faster than it usually does. I don't know why I'm surprised, broccoli and cheese sauces go together like pb & j! I used half chorizo, half ground beef, and I think next time I will try it with canned chili, but the presentation of the bread bowl filled with this was definitely a hit. Thanks!
  4. This is standard football and comfort fare for us, HOWEVER - no one I know anywhere (I'm from the south - that's probably why) adds BROCCOLI to their velveeta cheese dip. Somehow, that just is wrong to me, but the rest of it is fantastic!!!!
