Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage & Beer Cheese Dip

Many of us may be Moms with Crock Pots, but we cook for men with appetites.  With March Madness Basketball Games in full swing, I was looking for a great snack recipe and I found this one over at Dining At My Desk.  It sounds fabulous!

Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage & Beer Cheese Dip

Print Recipe
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:2 hours
Total Time:2 hours 10 minutes


  • 1 16oz. roll Hot Sausage (any variety), crumbled
  • 1 small green pepper; seeds removed & finely chopped
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 12oz. can beer
  • 6 cups [or 3 8oz. packages] shredded cheese (such as Monterrey Jack)
  • 1 8oz. block cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Tabasco
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet cook sausage, green pepper, onion, and garlic over medium-high heat for about 5-7 minutes or until meat is cooked through and vegetables start to soften. Drain any excess fat, then pour sausage and vegetables into bottom of slow cooker.
  • Add beer, shredded cheese, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste to slow cooker on top of sausage and vegetables. Stir everything to combine.
  • Cook dip on low for about 2 hours or until heated through and cheese has melted. Stir well. Remove cover and keep on low to serve warm.


You can cook the dip longer than 2 hours, but if it may thin out a little due to the condensation dripping from the top of your slow cooker. You can also substitute other vegetables for the onion and/or pepper or omit one. Other peppers such as jalapenos would also be a good addition.
Servings: 6 cups
