Taco Joe Dip

"A Low Fat Southwestern treat. I found this hearty appetizer recipe in a magazine a few years ago, and it is one of our family's favorites. Not only is this very easy to make, but the fact that it is made in a slow cooker allows me to prep it earlier in the day before things get too hectic. I think you'll enjoy this as well. Leftovers are yummy spooned over a baked potato."

    Yummy in the tummy! My whole family loved this on tortillas chips. Second time, served it over rice. Added sliced black olives (as we can never get enough black olives) in my family. Thanks for a versatile and good recipe. Plus, I love anything you can cook in the crockpot!

    We all enjoyed this easy recipe and the next day we used the filling for Taco Potatoe and was just as good.

    This is an easy, versatile crockpot dish. I plan to use mine as a filling for tacos and a topping for potatoes (it makes a lot) I made a couple of substitutions out of necessity and one out of preference. I had no canned corn so I used what I had left of a bag of frozen peas and corn and also added a small tin of chickpeas to bring it to 15 ounces. My preference substitution was to add some smoked paprika. Made for the Mexican leg of ZWT5

    I thought that this recipe was easy to make. I liked that you could throw everything in the crockpot and not worry about it. It makes a TON of dip--we had a large crowd for New Year's--but I think it serves more than 10-12 people as a dip. I thought that this dip was good, the flavor was good, but I did not hear any raves about it. People at our party said it was "good" as well, but didn't eat a lot of it. I served it with Tostito's Scoops. It reminded me of Taco Soup. Even though I drained everything that said to be drained, it still had a good bit of liquid with it. It just reminded me more of a soup than a dip. Thanks for sharing, and I may make it again, it just quite wasn't what I was expecting.

In all honesty it is because I tend to choose recipes based on ingredients and prep that I am familiar or comfortable with. If something just didn't work out for me I will leave a review with no stars and admit it was probably an error made on my end. I need to be a little more adventurous as a few recipes I thought would be "just ok" totally blew me away with how delicious they were. <b>My nephew RyGuy has joined the site as an aspiring young chef.
