Recipe Notes:

  1.  Make sure you choose a sweet variety of onion for your dip.
  2.  It’s best to use cheese from a block and shred it yourself. Pre-shredded cheese may not melt as well and your dip may appear grainy
  3.  This dip is best suited for a 2-3 quart slow cooker. I used the Crock-Pot® Casserole Crock™ 2.5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker
