Notes

Note on slow cookers: Cooking time will vary depending on the size of slow cooker you are using. If you are using larger slow cookers, more of the dip will be spread across the slow cooker so the cheese will melt faster. Smaller slow cookers will take longer to melt and cook the dip. Check the dip each hour, stir and you determine when it's ready to serve.
