This creamy slow cooker refried bean dip is the perfect game day party appetizer. It has just the right amount of cheese, green onions and cream cheese. Add a jalapeno to make it a spicy bean dip recipe.
Is it bad that I am pretty happy eating appetizers?
I don’t snack and eat like I’m living through the world’s longest cocktail party every day, even if I want to.

Getting my little crock pot really has been dangerous though.
Before I bought it, I mostly made a lot of cold dips full of mayo. I have since graduated to hot dips with lots of melty cheese instead. Not sure what’s worse for you, but I am sure they are both bad for you.
Thankfully, I don’t entertain as often as I’d like to and I have been going out with friends a little more to socialize. I hope one day I can forget about my love of bean dips and other apps and lean towards brussels sprouts and pork chops.
A girl can dream right?
Slow Cooker Refried Bean Dip
People hanging out in the yard? Your slow cooker can follow you.
The recipe only uses a few ingredients so it’s very quick to put together. Using canned refried beans will help decrease the prep time as well.
I’m such a huge fan of good refried beans!
When you’re ready to make your refried bean dip, just add everything to your slow cooker. You can spend the next two hours cleaning or prepping other food.
Or relaxing. That is how I would prefer to get ready for a party!
I’ve served this for game day parties and BBQs – it won everyone over. Grab a bag of your favorite tortilla chips (or make your own chips!) and you are good to go.
- 2 (20 oz) cans refried beans
- 4 oz softened cream cheese
- 1 cup chopped green onions
- 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- tortilla chips for dipping
- Lightly grease a 2 1/2 quart slow cooker. Add all ingredients except the cheddar cheese to the slow cooker and stir well.
- Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. At the end of cooking time, add the cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Serve with tortilla chips.
