Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 lbs lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cans (8-oz each) tomato sauce
2 pkg (8-oz each) cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup ketchup
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp mild chili powder
salt to taste

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef along with the onion; drain well.  Tranfer to a crockpot or slow cooker.  Add the tomato sauce, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, ketchup, garlic, sugar, oregano, chili powder and salt.  Stir to blend.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for about 2 hours until cheese is melted and thoroughly blended in.  Stir and taste before serving.  Adjust seasonings if desired.

Serve with Fritos or Tortilla Chips.

Note: For a spicier dip, use hot chili powder.
