Can I keep this warm in the crockpot?

Black bean dip, for DS's bday party. Can I make it this afternoon and warm it in the crockpot on Sunday?


1 large can (12-16oz) black beans, drained
1 1/2 teaspoons taco seasoning
1 large onion, chopped
1 celery stalk
4 cloves garlic
3 slices bacon, crisply cooked
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch cayenne pepper
Fill a blender container half way with cold water. Cut celery into 3-4 chunks and onion into quarters; process in the blender (with water) until minced. Drain.
In a skillet, sauté celery, onion and bacon together until bacon is crisp, adding whole garlic cloves half way through cooking and allowing them to take on a toasted color and turning them once or twice. Remove the garlic to blender container if they begin to become too dark.

Drain bacon on paper towels. Add to blender along with garlic cloves and garlic powder, taco seasoning, cayenne, celery, onion and drained black beans. Process until well combined but some small chunks of vegetables remain.

Taste and adjust seasonings, adding salt, pepper, or garlic powder (if needed - some taco seasonings contain more salt than others).

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips garnished with slices of jalapeno, if desired. May also be used as a base filling in tacos.

Yes, dips are some of the easiest things to reheat in the crockpot.

 My mom would always make a dip (the one I'm making tonight) in the crockpot and store it in the frig during the day and maybe 20-30 minutes before eating she'd take it out and turn it on low.

That's so good to know. I'm making cakes tomorrow morning, prepping fruits and sandwich makings in the afternoon, decorating the cake at night, and throwing a few last minute things together Sunday. I'm not sure how I'll pull it all off with two kids underfoot but either way I'll figure it out!

 I was going to say I would assume so but it looks like thats what most others said as well.
