Can You Make It in the Crockpot?

While the crockpot is a versatile kitchen appliance, we wouldn’t recommend using it for this particular recipe. The water doesn’t evaporate in the same way it does in the oven, potentially resulting in a watery dip. If you prefer a slow cooker method, check out our Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe instead!
