Latin Crock-Pot: Savory salsa & cheese dip is the perfect party appetizer

At parties and gatherings, I might be a little enthusiastic about the chips, dips, and appetizers. I mean they are totally yummers and it's not like I get to eat them on a regular basis, which is why I get so excited about them. I'm all about the standards, but I'm always happy to come across a new pre-meal noshing option. Enter this slow cooker salsa cheesecake that gets served with chips on the side. How fun is that? It's a savory twist on what we have come to think of as a dessert staple, gets a yummy makeover as a savory "cheesecake" that works as an amazing appetizer. How clever! The only problem for me is that if I make this for guests who are coming to my place, I might put a serious dent in it before the guests actually arrive.
