6. Double boiler works too (saucepan over saucpan filled w/water)
just make sure you cook slowly on low and stir.

13. TRY TO GET ONE
I have a nice 6 qt. one I wouldn't want my kitchen to be without.

Sorry I have no dip recipes. That's an area I don't pay much attention to.

But at least I can push for a crock pot!

9. Forget that "slow cooker" stuff...
It is a perfectly good recipe, just use a double boiler to get the consistency right after all the ingredients are blended, pour into a bowl, add the grated cheese and salsa as stated, and microwave it for about a minute or so.
I can see no use for that slow cooker at all except to waste time.
:hi:

10 oz pkg frozen spinach chopped, thawed and drained
