Oozy, gooey, meaty, cheesy and full of flavor. If that sounds good to you, then you should try this dip! It is a great crowd-pleaser and it feels like a truly luxurious dish – not “diet food” at all! You can make it in the slow cooker (or the slow cooker function of an Instant Pot) – just set it all up – using a time delay if necessary, forget about it, and the wonderful smell will fill your home!

How to Make a Low Carb Beef Enchilada Dip
To make this dip, brown off some ground beef in a skillet.
Drain any excess liquid, and add the meat to a slow cooker or Instant Pot. Add a can of tomato sauce, shredded cheese, paprika, ground cumin, and dried oregano. For the cheese I use a Mexican blend but anything that melts well would work just fine. And you can add some cayenne if you want to make it a spicy dip!
Stir well and cook for two hours. The cheese will have melted and formed into a fantastic dip that incorporates all the other ingredients!
Transfer to a serving dish and top with sliced green onions.
Leftovers are FANTASTIC in lettuce wraps or tortillas!
