Triple Crock Pot Dip: 3 Great Party Recipes

For Christmas last year, my husband gave me a triple slow cooker, thinking it would be great to use at parties.  I was so excited because I’ve wanted one forever, and yet, as soon as I got it I was completely overwhelmed.  What would I serve in it?  The only really great party recipe I had was my Sweet & Sour Meatballs, and I knew those would probably still need to go in the big 6 quart slow cooker.

I did some research and some experimenting, and finally came up with three separate hot recipes–an Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip, a Creamy Hot Crab Dip, and a Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip–that were all easy to make, and that I thought would make a good mix of flavors for a large gathering, especially when served alongside a slow cooker full of meatballs.

I finally had a chance to try them out at Trouble’s big mermaid party, and all three dips were a home run.  The truly great thing about using slow cookers for a party is that because all the dips are prepared ahead of time, then heated and kept warm, you can keep your focus on your guests instead of stressing about last minute food preparation.

    I have that exact slow cooker! It is the best thing ever for parties!!!! We like to use it to do a taco bar, with meat, beans, and queso dip. We’ve also used it to do a baked potato bar which was a big hit. Can’t wait to try these 3 dips!

        I got one at Sam’s club for )39.00. It is red and I love it. I just would like to know if you are able to put the crocks in the oven and then just keep warm in crockpot after cooked in the oven? Anyone know?

    These are fantastic for accommodating special dietary needs within one family, or at a party. Just in our family, we have one soy & bean-sensitive, one dairy-sensitive, and one gluten-sensitive. Good thing I like to cook from scratch! Mexican night: one pot for beef chili, one for bean. Italian night: red sauce in one pot, cream in another, sausage in a third.

    It’s a good way to keep different foods warm when I have to prepare ahead of time for a crazyily scheduled evening. Sloppy Joe meat in one, mashed potato in the next, a vegetable in the third. Everyone knows where to get dinner when they get home — and it’s nice and warm.

    Triple crock pots are BRILLIANT!

    My mother uses these for everything! If she has anyone over she serves out if these and keeps everything warm. She usually has at least one of the kids families over once week or so. They are perfect for any hot meal you serve your family to keep the sides and entree warm while serving.

    The recipes themselves make very large portions, did you cut them in half or more for the triple slow cooker?

      You can cut recipes in half or make the full amount and keep them in the fridge for another time.
      I hope this helps! 🙂

        Do you need to cut them in half for the smaller crocks such as the triple crock?

    Can you use the slow cooker liners in your triple slow cooker?

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

    Trying to make your ex lover jealous is one of the worst points you could do if
    you wish to acquire back with your ex lover, because all it is
    going to do is show him that you have actually relocated on and that he needs
    to do the same. Stay clear of acquiring dismayed if he is viewing someone else,
    because you won’t be able to stop it no issue exactly what you try.

    They are not just for dips! I have a triple crock pot unit that I love to use for parties. I end up with one hot dip (my daughter’s favorite, pizza dip), but use the other pots to keep meatballs and hot wings warm. I ended up buying another triple unit which is a bit smaller. Now I can have 6 warm dishes available for guests without having to worry about dealing with chafing dishes and sterno cans. I like to enjoy myself when I have a party and this allows me to offer my guests some warm dishes without having to worry about it so much.

    Are the amounts you list here perfect portions for the small pots or do I need to adjust if I want to make just enough for one of the pots?

    Thank you!
