EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If all of the cheese is not completely melted before you add it to the slow cooker, don't worry; it will continue melting as it sits.

The edges of the cheese may brown in the slow cooker as it is kept warm. If you don't mind some crunchy brown cheese bits, no worries. If you do mind, stir the dip often to prevent browning.
