All you need to do is drop the first 10 ingredients in the slow cooker and then let it do all the work while you handle the rest of your last-minute watch-party prep.

The dip will cook for an hour and a half to two hours, but only takes 10 minutes of hands-on time. Just before serving, stir in 1/4 cup of chopped scallions for an extra punch of flavor. Serve with celery sticks, carrots sticks, and your favorite tortilla chips. Buy pre-chopped celery and baby carrots to cut down on prep time.
