“We ordered a dip like this at a restaurant recently and I decided to try and re-create it. Thanks to the "chipotle" suggestion from my bud Riff I believe this is exact. It may sound awkward with crawfish but I assure you it is wonderful and ever so easy to make.”
1.5 quarts

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. ~Iused my crockpot for this~.
  2. Cube the cheese to make melting easier.
  3. Cut the end off each pepper and push the seeds out with the flat portion of a knife then dice finely.
  4. If crawfish meat portions are too large, cut into smaller pieces.
  5. Put all ingredients into crockpot including the adobe sauce from your peppers, stir frequently to allow all to melt and blend.
  6. I served with multi colored tortilla chips.
  7. The chipotle pepper is very spicy so you may want to omit the chili powder or cut back on the number of peppers if you do not like it spicy.
  8. *Thestore brand of Velveta works very well and the crawfish amount is just over a cup and I am sure you can use fresh as well.
  9. This is also easy to make in the microwave but making it in a crockpot you can serve it in it as well keeping the dip warm.
