I don’t know about you, but a good bacon cheeseburger can 100 percent turn my day around. This Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Dip will do just that for a crowd! You can whip these ingredients together and be ready to serve in no time. Take a bite and you’ll think you’re having one of the best bacon cheeseburgers around. Try using toasted baguette slices for dippers to give you the best cheeseburger bite. Consider doubling the recipe if you’ve got a big crowd because it goes fast.

I’m personally a big fan of having some spice with my burgers so I opted for a hotter version of the canned tomatoes and green chilies. If you’re serving this to kids, use the mild version and have a toppings bar for people to add their own heat. Some sliced jalapeños, a bottle of Sriracha and you’re good to go. To add a little more to your toppings bar, try classic cheeseburger toppings like relish, extra bacon bits, or crispy fried onions.
